um. wow. This is such an interesting book. Miss Rebecca definitely has a way of telling a story and this book is a Page Turner! HeLa cells and the scientists working on them have contributed so much to medicine and science, it's kind of mind blowing.

Eleanor Roosevelt
“Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one. You cannot make any useful contribution in life unless you do this.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Annie Proulx
“You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write.”
Annie Proulx

Melissa Hart
“Rain in the Northwest is not the pounding, flashing performance enjoyed by the eastern part of the nation. Nor is it the festive annual soaking I'd been used to in Southern California.

Melissa Hart, Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family
