Calling all Readitforward.com fans! Be sure to click here to enter the weekly giveaway for your chance to win a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot! The book is described as:

“Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times Bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew. Be sure to enter the Read It First giveaway by March 16, 2014 for your chance to win The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.
