The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot Skloot weaved three different story lines into one fascinating book. The story of Henrietta Lacks, her family and the uncertainty in their minds of what really happened to her was heart touching. The history of cellular research, the growth of the HeLa line and the future moral/ethical implications of tissue rights were well done; Skloot managed to clearly explain the scientific information without dumbing it down. Finally, the books is about the journey Skloot herself took to track down information.
