Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie by Lauren Redniss
This was a very unusual book. When I first heard a review of it, I thought it was a graphic novel but it wasn't; at least not like the few (ok, make that two) graphic novels I've read before. It looked more like a children's picture book, but it wasn't that either. It was an artful biography of Marie and Pierre Curie. I enjoyed the book for the most part, but found the jumps forward and backward in time to be somewhat disorienting. It was interesting learning about the Curies. I rated it 3 out of 5.
