I have just finished this and it was such a gripping read. I wonder what everyone else thought of it. Did you think Chris was guilty? Do you think he should have been let off? Do you think he did the right thing?
I thought he was guilty and should've gone to prison but I can see why Jodi Picoult gave it a happy ending. I think he should've made Emily seek professional help. He shouldn't have "played along" with her suicide idea for as long as he did.
Do one of the characters from this book reoccur in one of her later books and if yes, which one?
I agree, it frustrates me so much that he didn't tell anyone anything about how Emily felt, she would have understood eventually why he did it. But it seems so strange that the reader knows why she felt that way but no else did, I tend to forget that when I'm thinking about the characters (but I suppose her Mum knew in the end.) Have you read nineteen minutes? I love that book, it's another Picoult favourite.
I loved 'My Sister's Keeper' but I wish they hadn't changed the ending in the film, I cried so much when I read the book. Such a surprising ending.
