This week, we've started reading Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper, in which the main character, Anna, files a lawsuit against her parents over her right to her own body.
Is Anna a sympathetic character (i.e., do you feel sorry for her, about what she's going through)? Do you think that she should donate her kidney to her sister? How does your opinion change, knowing the other treatments to which her parents have subjected her? What would you do if you were in her situation? Why?
Your comments will count as a homework assignment for the third marking period.
