My Sister's Keeper Prologue

By Jodi Picoult


  • We don't know who is talking, but the first line is, "In my first memory, I am three years old and I am trying to kill my sister" (Prologue.1). Yee-haw.
  • The nameless narrator also says "I didn't seem to exist, except in relation to her" (Prologue.2). Elle Fanning, is that you?
  • Finally, she says, "I did not kill my sister. She did it all on her own" (Prologue.3). This plot is as thick as London smog already, so let's get started.
