The book Vanishing Acts is very intreguing, and exquisist. It's also hard to finsish one day before the book report is due, tho i'd love to continue reading it i really need some extra help with the ending.
so someone who's read it or maybe just a little farther than me could you help me out please?

I like to read books that are recommended, I was at Barnes and Noble just scanning the shelves and picked up Plain Truth. Since then I've read My Sisters Keeper, Vanishing Act and Perfect Match. I have recommended Jodi's books to friends and my book club. Everyone loves them. My only request would be that Jodi not use the foul language. It doesn't add anything to the quality of the book and is offensive to read. Please keep writing, just keep that suggestion in mind.

This book was just amazing, I knew after my friend recomened it to me that it was going to be great! but boy was I surprised when I started reading it and it was an amazing story that to me symbolized the right to independence and the bond of sisterhood! It was a truly beautiful story.

Hi i am a 16yearold reader i thought this book was really touching it had so many discriptive detail...one of the best yet! This book taught me a lot that i did not know. Since this book was reccomended to me i asked the librarian to get me all of her book and i hear a great deal of discussion over the book SECOND GLANCE...so i am looking forward to reading it.

Since my 16 year old sister has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, I have been frequently writing about it in numerous blogs, and i'm starting to write a book about it. Someone reading my blog, recommended "My Sister's Keeper" to me, and I just finished it after laughing, crying, and waiting impatiently to read the next page to find out what is going to happen next. I like how Jodi Picoult brings out everyone's personal point of view, so that we can understand what every individual is going through. But the end of the book confused me. After about page 405, it went back to page like 344, and I was wondering if it's supposed to be like that, or if it's a mistake from printing it. I'm thinking it was just a unique form of writing, but I just want to be sure i'm not missing anything. Because I wasn't really all that satisfied with this ending. If this is a printing mistake, I need to know if there's something more!

Hi! I bought this book like a little over a month ago along with some others and I think I let the size intimidate me a little and saved it for last. I am so mad at myself for not really getting excited about this book even like 100 or so pages into it. Its definitley a page turner and I loved the way ms.picoult changes characters but I just didnt agree with what Anna was doing and yet I didnt agree with the parents either. I have a sister and we are not as close as Anna and Kate but I would give my right arm if needed if it would save her life. But the more I started to read the more into it I became and the more I wondered Anna's true reason for the lawsuit. Then I stopped to think what would keep me from giving my sister a kidney and then the lightbulb went off and the answer was of course if my sister asked me not to. I feel kinda bad I know its only fiction but I felt like I should apologize for thinking so little of the Anna character...I didnt think she was a bad person or anything. I have to say no other book has ever taught me so much about myself and the miracle of a life and a gift of a life. I finally get how equal and unequal a parent's love can be for their children at the same time. This book was so well written I am going to pray for a movie even though the books are always better..lol..I am so ready to read anything else by Jodi! Any suggestions on what to read next?
