Rebecca Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks asks readers to consider whether the experiments on the author's mother's cells, without her consent, were worth the information gained about cancer, about gene mapping, and about cloning. Students read closely Skoot's story about racial prejudice and medical ethics, examining how the author's research lead to her discoveries.
