My Sister's Keeper

So I finished this book earlier this week, and was so moved by the story.  I loved it!  I wanted to share a couple of my favorite quotes from the book.  

"In my previous life I was a civil attorney.   At one point I truly believed that was what I wanted to be - but that was before I'd been handed a fistful of crused violets from a toddler.  Before i understood that the smile of a child is a tattoo:  inedible art."  

"A photo says, 'You were happy, and I wanted to catch that.  A photo says, 'You were so important to me that I put down everything else to come watch'."

"I realize then that we never have children, we recieve them."

Oooooo! Those are awesome quotes.

Now I am totally intrigued by what the book is about.

This was my favorite book by Jodie Picoult; super moving! You've got to read Plain Truth next!
Loved the quotes; so true!
Can't wait to see you! A little over one week and counting! Yeah! :0)

I actually read this because one of the residents I was working with when I was doing pediatric oncology (mostly leukemia kids) loved it. I hated it. I'm getting pickier as I get older.

This is one of my all-time favorite books and by far my fav Picoult! Such a powerful story!

Oh, and I hear you are coming down to the sunshine state soon! So exciting! Hopefully, we will get to hang out a little while you are in town!
