So after watching my sisters keeper i really want to donate my babys cord blood, is this possible?
Yes but you have to see if your hospital does cord blood banking. I googled it and got a lot of options I would talk to your doctor about it though, I plan on talking to my doctor about donating when I'm farther along [32 weeks] but I found the chance of ever being able to use my baby's own cord blood was under 25% so I figured I would donate and save someone else.
Just ask your doctor you may have to contact a certain company to get a kit to take to the hospital..

What do you think of the book My Sisters Keeper, by Jodi Picoult?
I'm about 3/4 of the way through the book and to be honest I'm not sure what I think of it. I wasn't even sure if I was going to bother to finish reading it so I read the last couple chapters to see how it ended.
I found what I did read very interesting from a moral and ethical perspective.....because EVERYONE involved has their own reasons and beliefs for what is happening and what they all would like to happen..
I lost interest because of the way it was written.....individual chapters on all the characters involved and much of it seemed irrelevant to me. A lot was written about the lawyer and his ex girlfriend and I felt that took away from the story.
I would have liked to have seen Picoult focus more on the actual purpose of the story....if and how moral and ethical issues like that should and can be resolved.

Can someone tell me a few themes of the book, My SIsters Keeper by Jodi Picoult?
Fire (Brian's a fire fighter, Jesse starts fires and Kate's illness is sort of like an out of control fire really)
Disease/Health/Medicine or anything else along those lines
What would you have liked to be different in the novel My Sisters Keeper ?
I still think in the novel Kate should've died. I know it was a surprise ending and all, but I really don't think that it's logical, that Kate, after receiving a kidney from Anna, would be perfectly fine and cured. It just doesn't make sense.
‘My sisters keeper’ – How did this film change your life?
The film didn't change my life because although the movie was sad, it was not enough like the book to satisfy a hardcore fan of the novel. But yeah, I'll admit I cried but I don't think it did the book justice.
What is your opinion on the alternate ending for my sisters keeper?
I did the same, I read the book about a week or two before the movie came out. When I saw the alternate ending I was completely shocked! I think the ending with Anna's death instead of Kate's was so much more powerful and unexpected. I wish they would have put that in instead. And did you notice how they changed Aunt Suzanne's name to Aunt Kelly?! That's ridiculous. And Kate never mentioned anything about going to Montana as far as I remember.
Overall I think they did an OK job on the film. I cried so much!!
Should My sisters keeper be a movie in theaters or a lifetime movie?
it was a great book but if they screw up the movie then they should just put it on lifetime
but if they actually make it really well without messing it up (cuz it was sucha great book) then it should def. be in theaters.
What's a poem that could relate to or describe Anna in the book "My Sisters Keeper"?
Remember by Christina Rossetti
No Coward Soul Is Mine by Emily Bronte
Tears, Idle Tears by Lord Tennyson
When we two parted by Lord Byron
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me by David Romano
What if you slept? by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Someone's keeper is the person who takes care of them. The youngest daughter was conceived to save the older sisters life, and through her entire life, her body was used to prolong the life of her older sister. She was her sister's keeper by force until the eldest decided she was done with the treatments. She continued being the keeper when she willingly fought for control of her own body, since it was at her sisters request, and her sister was both mentally ready to die and didn't want to devastate her parents by telling them the truth.
Yes, you should definitely read it. It's actually "My Sister's Keeper" and it's a book about a girl that was born to supply her sister with bone marrow and such because she would die without it. But then she finally decides to sue her own family because she doesn't want to donate her body anymore. The writing of Jodi Picoult is fantastic. And yes, there is a movie of it coming out but honestly, it doesn't look nearly as good as the book. Read it first and then watch the movie when it comes out! :D
To all who have read My Sisters Keeper i have a question?
I agree with Bunny in that it is a human reaction to the situation. However, I can't help but feel bad for Anna (the replacement child)...the only reason you were born was for spare parts. Kind of like being a little brother to the Prince of England. You're here for backup and too bad so sad. It would mess up your self esteem.
My wife and I just saw the movie the other night. My wife was holding back the tears at the end. It was a sad movie and well acted by all except Cameron Diaz, in our opinion. We think that Diaz was miscast for the role. Sofia Vassilieva, who played Kate Fitzgerald, was great.
I'm curious, how does the ending in the novel differ from the movie?
It's a recent book, so it is under copyright protection. Unless Ms. Picoult puts it online somewhere for free, or your local library has an e-book version available for download, you are probably out of luck.
Examples of Independence theme in My Sisters Keeper?
Certainly the lawsuit the girl is bringing to gain the rights of ownership to her own body.

Attending the prom despite mom's worries.
from the authors website:
Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable… a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life… even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yo

What are 3 inapropriate quotes in my sisters keeper?
It would largely depend on who has banned the book and what reasons they have stated as to quotes to why it is inappropriate.
An example of one library in America that has banned it is the following reasons
Challenged and or banned for drugs, suicide, violence, sexism, homosexuality, religious veiwpoint, offensive language, being sexually explicit and unsuited to age group.
Pulled from classrooms in Clawson (MI) as too racy for middle school students.
So if you used the above two examples of why the book is banned then the following quotes could be used.....
"You have the most fantastic eyes." By eyes, I mean tits, but whatever. (Jesse Chapter, page 190 in my edition of the book)
" "We were just getting drunk", the boyfriend said "Tequila." He was no more than seventeen. Old enough to have heard the myth that a shower will bring someone out of a heroin overdose" (Brian chapter Page 221)
"Here's my question: What age are you when you're in Heaven? I mean, if it's Heaven, you should be at your beauty-queen best, and I doubt that all the people who die of old age are wandering around toothless and bald"
(Anna page 272)
A couple of quick quotes to get you started. Good luck.
