    First off, the book is phenomenal. Now to the summary. Combined all together, yes, it is a good summary. You may want to elaborate on some things, maybe include a theme or something, but it is good.

    I would also change the part where you say Kate would rather die. She wouldn't rather die, it is just that she is so tired of living with APL that she has given up. Also, don't say leukemia, be more specific and say APL b/c that is what Kate has. And Anna hasn't given any organs yet- she has given blood, bone marrow, lymphocytes, etc. but no organs.

    Source(s): I have read the book and did extensive research on it for a report and did a report on APL.
