"Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate -- a life and a role that she has never challenged ... until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister -- and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves"--Cover

Couldn't put it down...
I picked up this book because it was on a list for books that handle multiple POVs well and I ended up getting sucked into this beautiful story of a family doing everything it can to stay intact while the threat of death is doing everything to tear them apart.
Picoult writes like poetry. She handles the subject of illness, death, and family with orchestrated finesse. One of the best books I've read in a while.
