Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back. This was such a good book! I'm not a big reader but, I couldn't put this book down! If you only read one book in your life....make it this one!
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot Amazing true story of the woman and family behind the HeLa cell line that has led to tremendous medical advances. Calls into question the ethics of tissue sampling and standard science practices. Great book!
The Red Tent -- a story about the only daughter of the Biblical figure Jacob and what her life might have been like; it presents a much different story than what is said about her in the Bible. Very good book.
