My Sister's Keeper

by Jodi Picoult

thumbs up

A very good book. The story of an adolescent girl who was born to be a donor for her sick sister. The book is a great story and questions the ethics of her birth at the same time. Piccoult does a great job of telling both sides of the position by the different members of the girls' family.

The Tenth Circle

by Jodi Picoult

thumbs down

I started listening to this story of a 14 yr old who is heartbroken after her older, popular, hockey star boyfriend breaks up with her. I felt the story was over after the first disc, but Wonderful Hubby listened to this book also and thought it was a good one. Perhaps I'll revisit it.
