2005: My Sister's Keeper

My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult, was the second book our club ever read, and it was a group pick. The 5 of us who participated gave the following ratings: 4, 5, 7, 9 and 10. The main debate we had centered on the mother's character. We discussed whether or not we would have done the same as she did if we were in her shoes.

What I found most fascinating about our discussion was the divergence in view between those of us who are mothers and those of us who are not. I have a son (at the time he was 2) and I found myself agreeing more with the other mom in the group, and less with the girls who don't have children.

There was lots more to this discussion (we split the book into two meetings) but I didn't start taking notes until 2007 so I can't give you any more details.
