  • "Thirteen-year-old Anna, conceived specifically to provide blood and bone marrow for her sister Kate who was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia at the age of two, decides to sue her parents for control of her body when her mother wants her to donate a kidney to Kate."
  • "Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukaemia that has plagued her since she was a child. Anna was born for this purpose, her parents tell her, which is why they love her even more. But now that she has reached an age of physical awareness, she can't help but long for control over her own body and respite form the constant flow of her own blood seeping into her sister's veins. And so she makes a decision."
  • "Die Entscheidung ist ihr schwergefallen, unendlich schwer. Die allerwenigsten Menschen müssen sie jemals treffen. Doch als Anna Fitzgerald dreizehn Jahre alt ist, kann sie es nicht mehr ertragen. Längst weiss sie nicht mehr, wie viele Operationen sie über sich hat ergehen lassen müssen. Anna, so scheint es ihr selbst, ist nur zu einem Zweck geboren worden - ihrer leukämiekranken Schwester Kate das Leben zu retten. Immer wieder. Nie hat sie diese Rolle angezweifelt, bis heute: Wie jeder Teenager aber beginnt Anna sich nun zu fragen, wer sie eigentlich ist. Ob sie ohne Kate eine eigene Persönlichkeit wäre? Ob Sara und Brian, ihre Eltern, jemals einen eigenständigen Menschen in ihr gesehen haben? Anna weiss es nicht. Und sie beschliesst, ihr Schicksal selbst in die Hand zu nehmen - ein Anwalt soll dafür sorgen, daß sie ihren Körper nie mehr für Kate zur Verfügung stellen muss."
  • "Con trece años Anna ha pasado por incontables operaciones, pruebas y transfusiones para que su hermana mayor sobreviva a la leucemia. Ha sido la perfecta donante. Ahora ha tomado una decisión que desgarrará a su familia y que puede tener consecuencias fatales para su hermana."@es

A 13 ans, elle a subi de nombreuses interventions, prélèvements et transfusions, afin que sa soeur Kate puisse combattre sa leucémie. Leur mère, Sara, trouve normal qu'Anna sacrifie ainsi son corps à cette lutte contre le cancer. Mais Anna craque lorsqu'elle lui demande de donner un rein à Kate. Elle veut disposer de sa vie."
