Transcript of My Sisters Keeper

Book By: Jodi Picoult My Sisters Keeper A Plot line is the visual that shows the progression of the story. Plot Line In My Sister's Keeper the setting is in Rhode Island. Setting Prezi By: Hannah Bennehoff Example: A plot line is a visual that shows the progression of the story. The plot line in My Sister's Keeper I think the plot line is... In the introduction stage, Anna talks about her family and all of the donations she gives to her sister. In the rising action stage, Anna goes to Campbell, Alexander, to sue her parents for the right of her body. Another rising action was when Kate( Anna's sister) went back to the hospital because of kidney failure. Anna goes to trial with Campbell. Anna and Campbell got in a car accident because Campbell had a seizure. You have to read the book to find out the climax. For me there was no falling action or conclusion, because in Anna's life everything was building up to the big finale. Point of View Setting is the place and time the story takes place. Point of View is whose voice is telling the story First Person- The character telling the story Second Person- is a person telling the story, but talking directly to the reader. Third Person- someone outside telling the story. In My Sister's Keeper, there are a lot of point of views. They are, Anna, Sara, Brian, Jesse, Campbell, and Julia. In the last chapter, the point of view is Kate's. Although in each chapter, the point of view is in first person. Flashbacks Flashback- an interrelation in the story, to show and tell a scene from the past For most of the story, Sara (the mom), talks in the past and her memories. Example Sara

1990

The bruise is the size and shape of a four- leaf clover, and sits square between Kate's shoulder blades. Jesse is the one to find it, while they are both in the bathtub. "Mommy," he asks, "does that mean she's lucky?"
I try to rub it off first, assuming it's dirt, without success. Kate, two, the subject of scrutiny, stares up at me with her china blue eyes. "Does it hurt?" I ask her, and she shakes her head. Anna's Example As we got older, I didn't seem to exist, except in relation to her. I would watch her sleep across the room from me, one long shadow linking our beds, and I would count the ways. Poison, sprinkled on her cereal. A wicked undertow off the beach. Lightning striking.

In the end, though, I did not kill my sister. She did it all on her own.

Or at least this is what I tell myself. Campbell's Example There are some things we do because we convince ourselves it would be better for everyone involved. We tell ourselves that it's the right thing to do, the atlruistic thing to do. It's far easier then telling the truth.
I pushed Julia away from me. Walked down that cemetery hill. Didn't look back. Protagonist and Antagonist Protagonist- is the main character, who is not necessarily a hero or a heroine In my view, My Sister's Keeper, there is no real or obvious protagonist or antagonist. Since the point of views change, I think that the story is kinda like a galaxy because every persons story revolves around Kate. Then at some points in the book Anna is the main character. Although in the story, I would say that Sara, Campbell or Anna are the antagonist. I think Sara is the antagonist because she is killing Anna while trying to keep Kate alive. Campbell because he is helping Anna stop giving Kate donations, so Kate is dying, and Anna because she wants to stop helping her sister, so Kate is dying. I think the protagonists in this book are Anna, Brian, and Kate. Anna because she doesn't want to kill her own body, although she does still care about her sister. Brian because he believe that Anna is right and that she shouldn't be forced to donate to her sister, but of course he does love Kate very much so. Kate because she is fighting the cancer. Good vs Evil Hero vs Villain Brother vs Sister Awkward Boy vs Bully Universal Theme Man vs Man Man vs Self Man vs Society Good vs Evil My Sister's Keeper has two point of views. One is Man vs Man. I think Man vs Man because Anna should live and Kate should die. That's because society doesn't approve of genetically created babies, just to help save another child. The theme of the book is realistic fiction. I think so because this could happen in real life, but the story is not a real story that happened in history.
