    Kelly Jacobs has already paid the ultimate price of loving a warrior. She has the folded flag and the grateful thanks of a nation to prove it. Navy SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker can't ask her to accept that risk again, even though he loves her. But the man responsible for her husband's death is back, closer than either of them realize. Kelly's in danger, and Joe may not get there in time.

    If you could sum up My Sister's Keeper in three words, what would they be?

    Ending not what was expected.


    Would you recommend My Sister's Keeper to your friends? Why or why not?

    The bad language is not necessary. Because of it I won't recommend it.


    Have you listened to any of various’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The readers did a very good job. Especially Tom Stechulte, he is one of my favorites.


    If you could rename My Sister's Keeper, what would you call it?

    The mother is the keeper, maybe?


    Any additional comments?

    It was hard to follow the story line so it was confusing as to what was happening at times.

    Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him.

    I saw the movie before I read the book. Although, I loved the movie, the book was much better because you got the whole story Nicholas Sparks intended. Some of the meaning was lost in the movie translation.
