4. The Author
The author of "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" seems like a caring person from reading this book. She is interested in subjects like science as she explained in the book. "... without explaining anything and left the family worrying." (Skloot) She not only wanted to learn more about this study, but wanted to help the family. "...While writing this book, I conducted more than a thousand hours of interviews with family and friends of Henrietta Lacks..." (Skloot) She sounds like a dedicated person because she spent a lot of time to research information for this book.
