Are all of Jodi Picoult's books based on a true story?

Hey everyone!
Does anybody know if all or some or any of Jodi Picoult's books are based on a true story or life experience? I really enjoyed My Sister's Keeper, are there anymore similar to that? I seem to enjoy reading books with medical issues or problems. (No idea why) I read lots of Lurlene Mcdaniels books. Sorry, got carried away there. I appreciate your advice and input!
Thanks in advance!

I loved My Sister's Keeper.
Jodi Picoult has a plethora of other books you would definitely like! My personal favorite is Salem Falls, but you also might like Nineteen Minutes, Compassion and The Tenth Circle.
I loved Perfect Match too, I learned so much from that book.
Not sure if all of her stories are real, I think some are based on real stories and some are not.

Jodi Picoult's books are quite thought provoking and controversial.
I don't know an author that writes like Jodi Picoult because she writes so unique.
My ranking for her books would be:

1. My Sister's Keeper
2. Plain Truth
3. The Pact
4. The Tenth Circle
5. Nineteen Minutes

My Sister's Keeper was definitely amazing...I cried so much at the end, lol.
I'm reading one of her books now called handle with care, it's not exactly like my sisters keeper, but it's about a girl with otseogenesis imperfecta, it's really good.
Try the other books by Jodi Picoult. I read Nineteen Minutes and loved that one even more. My friend has read almost all of them, and they are some of her favorite books.

Oh my god! I absolutely loved My Sister's Keeper- though I cried my eyes out at the end- Jodi Picoult did an amazing job! Well... if you're looking for similar books then I'd suggest something from the same author.
