Read It Before They Screen It

On June 26th the movie based on Jodi Picoult's 2004 novel My Sister's Keeper will be released, starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin, according to an article on the USA Today website. But fans of the book need to be warned -- the movie version has a different ending.

Picoult hasn't seen the movie but has read the script: "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."
