New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness. 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. My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, in My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

Ever since his younger sister Martha woke him early one Sunday morning holding a Rubic's Cube in the palm of her hand with all the colored squares in perfect alignment, in some backward way, twelve-year-old Richard Baimbridge became his sister's motivation. If she saw me give up on anything, regardless of how insignificant-forgetting a phone number, finding the right nut to fit a bolt, or fixing a broken toy-she'd go after it with fanaticism and would not give up until she'd figured it out.Being better than Richard challenged Martha and when she succeeded, it fulfilled her. Richard was proud of her, but not like their Dad. Their Dad loved it. It seemed the more Martha outdid Richard, the more he liked it. By the time Richard left home at eighteen, there was a gap between his father and him that an ocean couldn't fill.But when Martha is brutally attacked while investigating the rape and attempted murder of a thirteen-year old for the News & Observer, Richard Baimbridge moves back to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, to assist his family in caring for his sister and comes face to face with his tormented past and a dark family secret.Despised by his father and haunted by his past, he fights to stay above the flood of childhood trauma while longing to return to the life he'd built in New York City. But when the police exhaust all leads in his sister's case, wheelchair-bound Martha refuses to let her case die and, with Richard as her legs, insists on continuing the investigation herself, drawing Richard into the darker side of Wilmington - a place of greed, violence, and murder - where he, himself, becomes a primary murder suspect.

In a tight, dramatic, two-character, two-act play Ted Allan, one of Canada's best-known playwrights, challenges us to think again about love and guilt, about madness and normalcy. My Sister's Keeper was first produced at the 1976 Lennoxville Festival in Quebec. (an earlier version, entitled 'I've Seen You Cut Lemons,' had been directed by Sean Connery at the Fortune Theatre in London in 1970.) It is a play about sensitivity and about victims; about what we do to each other and particularly about what society does to women; about what makes us able to love and what prevents us from allowing ourselves to love. One day 'schizophrenic' Sarah arrives--to stay--at the London flat of her successful, 'normal' brother. The ensuing confrontations lead us, when we can catch our breath, to ask just who it is that is insane, and why?
