Book description:
"A major decision about me is being made, and no one's bothered to ask the one person who most deserves it to speak her opinion." The only reason Anna was born was to donate her cord blood cells to her older sister. And though Anna is not sick, she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since she was a child. Anna was born for this purpose, her parents tell her, which is why they love her even more. But now that she has reached an age of physical awareness, she can't help but long for control over her own body and respite from the constant flow of her own blood seeping into her sister's veins. And so she makes a decision that for most would be too difficult to bear, at any time and at any age. She decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body

Fikk denne på BC-treff i går, tror at det må ha vært akkurat den boken som nettopp er filmet, og som jeg leste om i avisen i dag. Det kunne være interessant å se filmen når jeg har lest boken.

I liked the book - at least most of it - but if I were the author, I would have chosen another way to end the story.
It raises quite interesting moral questions. It was well written, and I found the main character, Anna, a quite charming and interesting young person.
I will probably bring this book to our next BC-meetup in Oslo.

Got it at bookcrossing meetup.

Very well written. Until the ending, which I didn't like. Very American.
