Jodi Picoult is an award-winning American novelist, author of the best-selling ‘My Sister’s Keeper’, which has since been turned into a hit Hollywood movie.
She currently has a massive 14 million copies of her books in print worldwide.
Jodi was raised in Long Island, so was in the dark on some of the Manchester-related questions – but she bravely battled through.
