Puede un padre o una madre amar demasiado?
O es que acaso tanto amor nunca es suficiente?
Anna Fitzgerald no esta enferma, aunque pudiera parecerlo. Con apenas trece anos de edad ha soportado innumerables operaciones, inyecciones y transfusiones para que su hermana mayor Kate pueda de alguna manera sobrevivir a la leucemia que la aqueja desde su ninez.
Anna, al ser geneticamente compatible con su hermana, fue la candidata idonea para ser la donante del transplante de medula de Kate, asumiendo asi un papel que nunca cuestionaria sino hasta ahora. Como la mayoria de los adolescentes, Anna esta comenzando a plantearse quien realmente es. Pero a diferencia de los demas, ella siempre ha sido definida en funcion de Kate. Es ahora cuando Anna toma una decision que ante los ojos del mundo no es mas que impensable, una decision que desgarrara a su familia, atrayendo quiza fatales consecuencias para su hermana a la que tanto ama. Se trata de una provocadora novela que presenta una serie de planteamientos eticos importantes. "Por la vida de mi hermana" no es solamente la historia familiar de la lucha por sobrevivir sino una contemporanea parabola moral.
