Handle with Care book . This was the first Jodi Picoult book where I really struggled to finish it. I found it very repetitive & much too similar to My Sister's Keeper - just a different disease.

User reviews
Jodi continues to warm our hearts, move us and teach us about things. This book, brilliantly written, is about the choices we have in life. It's about love of family and about the ease with which friends come and go. It's about learning who we are and accepting ourselves.

"Handle With Care" is about the birth of a girl with OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta) and how she lights up the lives of her family yet breaks bones just by rolling over in bed. She breaks bones falling. The list is endless. The point is, the family was not informed at the ultrasound that they were giving birth to a daughter with OI. This book brings you in and shows you how a person with OI lives. It shows you the love and care with which her family treats her and, she in turn, treats them.

So, the question is: if you were given a choice, would you end a pregnancy if you knew your baby was going to have OI and be in pain for the rest of her life?

Pick up a copy of "Handle With Care" and enter the world of OI.
I don't know where to start and how to express that I can't say enough good about this book. While I was reading it I started to get upset that I knew it would soon be over and I began researching which other books by the author I wanted to buy first because I wanted to have one ready to read next. There was a lot going on throughout the book, but not too much to keep up with just enough to keep me anticipating what was next. I thought many times about how much research had to go into writing this book because the author was obviously extremely knowledgeable about many topics and behind the scenes workings and details of disease processes and several careers. There is one thing that could be a positive or negative and that was how she told the story from the perspective of the characters. Several times I had to flip a few pages back to remind myself who she was talking about, but it was nice at times to know what each person was thinking. Loved it!
Handle With Care-very interesting; and informative. Another story that gives us something to really think about. The author is clever, entertaining, and unpredictable. I enjoyed this book very much.
She goes into the aspects of what its like to raise a child with special needs and to fight for that child no matter what the cost. The characters were well developed as each chapter was written in the first person from the perspective of that character. The viewpoints on the various plot angles were examined from their perspectives.
The story draws the reader in emotionally and psychologically as it examines various relationships and how they go through changes-good and bad as the reader is taken through a legal battle brought on by the mother of a child born with a severe bone disease. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good, well written story and learn a few things along the way.
This was a heart rending story about a child born with a bone malady, which manifest with frequent broken bones. It was necessary to handle with care as the title suggests. Any fall or even coughing could bring on a new fracture. She was loved and cared for by mother, father and older sister. Mother put the child in front of everyone and everything else. Father was supportive but away from home, working much of the time. Sister was actually jealous of all the attention the child received. When mother decided to file a law suite against the obstetrition for wrongful birth, things got pretty tense. I often dreaded turning the page, because I was afraid of what would happen next, because there was much hostility between family, obstetrition and community. A moral dilemma, to say the least. I highly recommend this book. You will be surprised at the ending!
Willow O'Keefe is born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Type III - otherwise known as brittle bone disease. Willow's bones can break by just sneezing or turning over in bed while sleeping. She will suffer hundreds of broken bones throughout her life span.

After a horrible experience in Disney World, the family consults an attorney and they are introduced to the term "Wrongful Birth". The attorney's and Charlotte (Willow's mother) believe that Willow's condition was not diagnosed in time for Charlotte to have the option of whether or not to terminate the pregnancy. Therefore a malpractice lawsuit is filed against her OB/GYN and BFF, Piper.

This lawsuit is the main focus and the one that sets the wheels in motion throughout the story. It is also what makes and breaks these people; including two marriages, friendships, and two innocent girls.

Charlotte O'Keefe has to convince a jury that although she loves her daughter unconditionally, the cost and ability to properly raise her is just something that her family cannot afford and therefore must come from someone else, all by standing up in front of a jury and admitting that if she had prior knowledge to her daughter's condition, she would have terminated the pregnancy.

Written in the same style of "My Sister's Keeper", this story is told from different perspectives (Charlotte; Sean - Willow's dad; Amelia - Willow's older sister; Piper - Charlotte's OB/GYN and best friend; and Marin - Charlotte's attorney) - yet, all the chapters are written as letters to Willow. To avoid confusion, all characters have their own chapters and their own font-type so that you are aware of who you are living through at the moment.

I've read several reviews that say that this story is a remake of "My Sister's Keeper" and, although there are some similarities, I found the storyline to be very engrossing and something that I honestly could not put down.I also read some reviews that say that the story was too much like Picoult's other books and therefore predictable, but I did not find this to be true.

I learned so much about OI and, of course, plan on googling to learn more about it. I laughed and I cried and was at war with myself on who was right or who was wrong. I will say that I cried just about every other page for the first couple of chapters, then totally lost it at the end, but what a ride through moral/ethical issues. I hope you enjoy it through your tears, I know I did.
