My Sister's Keeper Trailer -- Film Based on Picoult Novel Opens Tomorrow

Cynthia Dermody

Huge Jodi Picoult fan here. If there's one author a mom should read to help her feel better about herself, she's the one.

If you've read any of her books, like My Sister's Keeper, the story of a girl who is conceived soley to be a medical donor for her sick older sister, and the first of her 16 novels to be made into a major film, you know what I'm talking about.

All of Picoult's books deal with the relationships between parents and their children, who all face some type of emotional or physical harm. Her message is the same: That no matter how much we try to do the right thing, how safe we try to keep our kids, how much we think we are aware of what's going on in their lives, something always comes along to prove us wrong.

In short, we're not perfect and there are so many things we cannot control that we might as well quit trying!

My Sister's Keeper opens in theaters tomorrow, June 26, and stars Alec Baldwin, Cameron Diaz, Jason Patric, and Abigail Breslin ("Little Miss Sunshine") as "Anna," the daughter caught in the middle of a huge medical, legal and ethical dilemma.

With a cast like that it's sure to be spectacular, but I'd totally recommend reading the book first. In classic Picoult style, you just won't see the ending coming.
