Reader’s Annotation:
A young girl is horribly injured in a car crash, as a result her brain is put into a chimpanzee’s body. The story follows the ethical, moral, and personal complications that follow this decision.

Have you ever felt like an animal? Wondered what it would like to be one? Eva, a teenage girl, doesn’t have to wonder what it’s like to be a chimpanzee, she is one.

-Futuristic setting
-Link between humans and primates
-Animal rights
-Political undertones of the story
-Cautionary tale
