the immortal life of henrietta lacks by rebecca skloot
“we must not see any person as an abstraction. instead, we must see in every person a universe with it’s own secrets, with it’s own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.” - elie wiesel (open quote to the book)
i have a different book cover, but i prefer the 2 above, and if you know me you know i’m a snob about that. i only just began the book, i’m about 20 so pages in and can already tell soon enough i won’t be able to put it down. my aunt gave this to me after she finished reading it in hawaii and loved it. i can’t believe i’m just starting.
i have a hot cup of tea next to me and a perfect evening to read on :)
