My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult

Kate has had leukemia since she was a tiny child. Anna has been Kate's donor every time she needs transfusions or bone marrow, but when the girl's parents want to take one of Anna's kidneys and give it to Kate, Anna puts her foot down. She hires a lawyer, and sues her parents for the right to decide what will happen to her own body.

The characters are great, the writing effortless to read and the plot interesting and fast moving. It was great, until the ending. It was a complete deus ex machina/cliche and really stupid to boot. The bad ending completely ruined the rest of the good reading experience for me.
