Rebecca Skloot's name is a well-known one in the book blogging community and the world at large after the publication of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Admittedly, I haven't read it yet. My time with the library's copy came and went before I could finish, but I will most definitely get it back!
While our time together was far too limited, I found something I liked in Rebecca Skloot's writing style from only a few pages. Her writing about science is really readable. Whether you're a student in a science class or a reader with a science book in hand, the last thing we really want is a monotone lecture. Rebecca Skloot is far from that writer or lecturer.
