When Henrietta Lacks died from cancer in 1951, she had no idea that her cells would become the basis of medical breakthroughs for years to come; neither did her relatives. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks spent 75 weeks on the NYT bestseller list. It skillfully examines the consequences of harvesting human cells for research. This nonfiction selection is a perfect way to spark discussions in your classroom about ethics, progress, morality, and science.

Excellent book for advanced students! The book presents the family's story as well as the history behind the medical science. Students taking both AP English Language and AP Biology say that the book ties the two courses together nicely and provides topics of discussion for both.
