It took a little while to get into the storyline, but once there, I enjoyed the story of these two women. It was predictable in places, but overall the message of friendship came through loud and clear.

Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often don't amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Her theory proves true the summer she's 14, when she makes the decision to pick up a penny embedded in asphalt and consequently ends up stopping a robbery, getting a job, and meeting someone who changes her life forever: Miss Shaw.

I just got through listening to this book. I bought it with no expectation, I am new to Joyce Meyer. It was a story that tore my heart and was a testament to God's love for us all and how He helps us survive even the most trying of trials.

I enjoyed Jodi Picoult's "Vanishing Acts" and was hoping this would be true as well for "My Sister's Keeper". I was not disappointed. I think I enjoyed this story even more. It had so much human warmth and insight into the characters. It was so well narrated. It kept my interest from beginning to end. It really touched my heart as well. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this author. I highly recommend this audiobook.
