I finished My Sister's Keeper last night, and I'm having a hard time deciding how heartily I want to recommend the book. It was a page-turner, sure. The subject matter (designer babies and medical ethics) is timely and Jodi Picoult does a convincing job of switching voices between the seven main characters. Still, I felt like she was racing to the finish line only shock me with a sudden reversal of fortune in the last 20 pages.

Next up: The Memory Keeper's Daughter, another story of siblings and sickness with "Keeper" in the title.
