Sibs are People, too
One of Picoult's best. She set aside her tendency to hurry through a book, failing to complete characters as though she has a word quota and doesn't want to use too many in one place, and did a much more thorough job with this one. You hate and love almost everyone before it's over. The younger sister is portrayed as a bit too sophiscated and understanding for an adolescent that has been through what she has, and pity the poor child whose mother is as single-minded as this one, but, overall, a very good effort about a topic that won't go away soon.
