Discussion : We all agreed that Rebecca Skloot did a fine job of explaining the scientific stuff while also telling the story of the Lacks family with sensitivity. We thought her writing pure and simple and true.
Ros had done her research and had found a video of Rebecca Skloot for us to see and on Rebecca’s website, a Jeopardy game for us to play. Congratulations to Heidi, Ros and Beverley who won!!!!!
This fascinating book scored highly at 4.2.
Best Book Cover – On the right is the book cover Trish chose as her favourite (welcome back, Trish!)
