Jodi Picoult Not Thrilled With New Ending to My Sister's Keeper Movie

Jodi Picoult Not Thrilled With New Ending to My Sister's Keeper Movie


Fans of Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper should expect to see a different ending in the movie version than the book's ending when the film hits theaters June 26. Picoult herself hasn't yet seen the movie but has read the script, and recently told USA Today, "Having the ending changed would certainly not have been my choice. I wrote the ending very intentionally because I wanted to leave the reader with a certain message. And changing that ending changes that message. However, I am excited to see the movie and to judge it on its strengths."

Some fans of the book, however, are not OK with the change at all. Outraged by the news, a 16-year-old in Jericho, NY, has started the Facebook group "Save My Sister's Keeper!!" which currently has over 1,600 members. On the group page, the teen writes that she sent a petition to New Line Cinema's Toby Emmerich but hasn't heard back from him.

What do you think about a different ending to My Sister's Keeper? If you are a fan of the book, how much of that has to do with the story's ending? Is the idea of a different ending upsetting?
