Books Worth Reading

Combining the history of Henrietta Lacks and her family with the history of HeLa cells (the ones taken from Lacks and cultured for scientific research), writer Rebecca Skloot creates a narrative that's compelling and heartbreaking. Reading it is both a lesson in science and bioethics, as well as a more intimate glimpse into a family's loss and its perseverance.
