When reading a story, book, or novel, you’re expected to follow the story from start to end--that is if the plot is to your own tastes. Exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution is what makes up a plot. The better the plot is structured, the better the story is, right?

Let’s face it. Starting to write a novel an essay, or an article has become one of the many challenging tasks facing humanity.

However, the title is very interesting and it shows that Henrietta’s legacy will live on forever. The title is not only a tribute to Henrietta Lacks, it is also a technique to intrigue viewers and lead to them purchasing the novel.

Suspense is an extremely important technique that can be used in many contrasting ways. It gives readers the opportunity to slip into their favorite character’s shoes, sit on the edge of their seat, and ultimately immerse themselves into the book.
