To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Jill, and I am Jodi Picoult’s agent. She is a fairly new author, so you may have never heard of her before, but after you read her latest book “My Sisters Keeper” she will be the talk of the nation! This book is one of the most heart-warming novels I have ever heard of. It is based on a true story that happened a few years ago. Picoult wants to get her story out there. She wants to be heard. She wants to write more novels, just like this one, but better. “My Sisters Keeper” is about a family. Not your average family, but a family with three children, one who happens to be suffering from cancer. Since Kate was a little girl, she developed Leukemia, and needed all types of complicated surgeries, but little did her parents know that none of the family members were a match for kidney transplants, blood transfusions, and other needs of Kate. After a lot of thinking and consideration, they decided to have another child, except this one would be created to be genetically the same as Kate so that she could get the help she needed and hopefully be cured of her cancer. After the family had the new baby, Anna, she was immediately used for blood, bone marrow, and other surgeries. Anna grows tired of getting poked with needles and getting surgeries, so she does something unforgettable to herself, and her family. Cancer is a very touching topic, and Picoult wants to get her story out there. I know that you could help me, but you must read the full novel in order to understand all the struggles and hardships that these two little girls had to go through. I would like for you to at least read the novel, and consider publishing it before you give an automatic answer. To get in touch with me, please contact me at 555-3799. Thank you for your time. Sincerely,

Jill
