I highly recommend this book. Less the story of Henrietta, and more the story of Rebecca Skloot's endeavours to learn about the family, as well as the development of friendships while researching, this book is very easy to read and yet contains a plethora of information. I could hardly put it down. The writing is straight-forward and clear, the structure is creative, and the information within is astounding. If you are looking for a light read that also encompasses some popular science, then this is the book for you.
