Even though it is saddening to put the book down and finish reading, it was a fantastic book, and really catches the reader’s attention. The book is aimed for young adults readers, but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes sad, heartbreaking stories. It can make anyone and everyone cry. The use of figurative language really helped support the book and make it better. The figurative language drew out each scene of the book perfectly, Drawing out the picture helps the reader feel the emotions of the character and improve the books quality, and the multiple perspectives helped improve the book too. Getting everyone’s angle enhanced the reader’s understanding and made the main crisis viewable from everywhere. One of the very few flaws was the ending. It was rather sudden and abrupt. Rating this book four and a half out of five stars seems fitting, because it was heartwarming and interesting, but the ending was almost obvious and sudden. My Sister’s Keeper is a depressing yet good read and is defiantly recommended to anyone who likes heartfelt and heartbreaking books. “Family is like music, some high notes, some low notes, but always a beautiful song,” -Jesse
