Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult

I just finished the newest one by Picoult, and wow, it is another amazing book. I gave it 5 stars.

There are quite a few similiarites to My Sister's Keeper.

It is about a family with a daughter who has OI, which is also known as brittle bone syndrome. Her bones are so fragile they can break with the slightest fall or bump.
There is lawsuit involved, another sister and a husband. Each chapter is told from the point of view of a different character and they are "talking" to the little girl in each chapter.
The story follows the little girl's life, goes from the past to the present and shows how her disability affects the family as a whole both in a positive and negative way.
I don't want to give too much away about the lawsuit or the outcome.

If you are a Picoult fan, esp a fan of My Sister's Keeper, this is a must read.

It's been awhile since I've read Picoult and I need to get back to her books.
