My sisters keeper letters about literature

Extracts from this document...


Dear Jodi Picoult, I used to think being selfless meant giving out a compliment, giving my old clothes away, or maybe even volunteering to help decorate a dance after school, but after I read your book, My Sister's Keeper, I knew that there was so much more I could do. Your characters were so inspiring. They did anything they could to save Kate's life and although sometimes they went too far, they inspired me to want to become someone like them. Your book has really changed my outlook on life. When I picked it up, I figured that it would be just another book to read over summer vacation, you know, something that would be nice to pass the day away but as soon as I read the first chapter I knew it would be different. ...read more.

This book taught me one of the most important life lessons and I am glad that I use it because it is making me a thoughtful, caring citizen. So, I just wanted to say thank you for writing your book because it has made me a much better person. ...read more.
