I really enjoyed this novel. I was a Biology undergrad and never heard of Henrietta Lacks. What a shame that her family has been treated as they have. It's also shocking to learn that we do not (still do not) own what happens to things removed from our bodies by doctors. Are we supposed to ask for these items to ensure they aren't used for things we wouldn't approve of. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for bettering the common good. But, unfortunately most doctors are no longer in it for the common good. It's all about money. Anyway, it's very educational while still being an interesting read. Kudos!
