Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high! ...But you don't have to take my, or Lamar Burton's, word for it. Just take a look, it's in a book.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot Easy read (to the degree that one can read 50 pages within an hour or two) that doesn't weigh so heavily on biology that non-science people will be put off, while maintaining continuity of history and human interest. (Hum, that sounds pretty technical and something a machine could produce!) It could have been better if at the end it was stated whether any of the proceeds from the book's sales went to the family or not, and I don't recommend reading the acknowledgements late at night as they go on for 5 pages. Worth the read.
