My Sister's Keeper
Kate Fitzgerald She is initially the center of it all, where the story first sprouted. At age two, Kate was diagnosed with a rare and incurable disease: acute promyelocytic leukemia. With guaranteed death around the corner if a bone marrow transplant was unlikely to work from a non-relative, Anna was conceived as her genetic match and lifeline donor. Throughout a series a relapses routinely occurring, Kate never really had the chance to enjoy life as it should be, and despite her family's encouragement and TLC she was tired of the endless suffering and fear of dying any minute. Even though Kate is the strive of the story, the only time we hear her speak is in the Epilogue.
Anna Fitzgerald She lights the fire, is the face of the conflict itself. We are introduced to Anna as the shadow of her sister, a tool to repair Kate's broken parts. As she nears her teen years however, and begins to discover herself as an individual apart from Kate, she wants to be free of donating to Kate, and feels filing a lawsuit against her parents is the way to do it. With nobody on her side but her brother, Jesse, and attorney, Anna is fired with criticism from her parents for pulling such an act just when Kate needs her most.
Sara Fitzgerald The mother, the enemy of it all, Sara Fitzgerald is causing more damage than that she is trying so unsuccessfully to prevent.
