Book Review:

An oldie but a goodie, My Sister’s Keeper by best-selling author Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite books.


Anna’s sister Kate has a rare type of cancer called acute promyelocytic leukemia, and this is ultimately the reason Anna was born. She is the product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis and because of this is the perfect bone marrow match for Kate. She’s undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots all so that her sister Kate can fight the leukemic cells inside of her. She has never challenged her role in the family . . . until now. As a teenager Anna starts to question who she truly is. She has always been defined in terms of her sister, so she makes a choice that for most is unthinkable. This choice will tear her family apart and could have fatal consequences for Kate, the sister she loves.  ~Elizabeth Dexter

Peer Buddies:

For the first three-week session of WIN, I was assigned peer buddies. Peer buddies is a program that helps bring together the students with disabilities and those without, and just be friends. The first three weeks, we learned about different disabilities, such as hearing and visual impairment, down-syndrome, and autism. We then filled out applications and ten people were selected to be paired up with the kids; I was one of them. My peer buddy is so much fun to be around, and she always makes us smile when we are feeling down. We play board games, draw, read, and do whatever else we want to do. Peer buddies is an awesome thing to be involved in.  ~Emma Cato
