Wow! This book has opened my eyes to so many things! I mean, not only is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks engaging and amazing story of this family who has gone through so much, but it also educates you about the medical research field. We all marvel when they find the cure for this or new information about viruses or cancer, but we never actually think about how they do it. And it's something people should know about and also what a great person Henrietta was.
