The Washington Highlands High Noon Book Clubhad a wonderful discussion this month, talking aboutthe book "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. The book was about a family who had two childrenand the eldest became sick with cancer. The Parents made the decision to have another child who would help save the life of the sick daughter. The youngest daughterwas used for more than 11 years giving blood, giving bonemarrow, and ultimately to give a kidney. She refused. Read the book to see what happens.
