The New York Times bestseller - of how six bonobo apes change the
lives of three humans, from master storyteller Sara Gruen, author
of the international bestseller, Water for Elephants. These bonobos
are no ordinary apes. Like others of their species, they are
capable of reason and carrying on deep relationships - but, unlike
most bonobos, they also know American Sign Language. Isabel Duncan,
a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn't understand
people, but animals she gets, especially the bonobos. Isabel feels
more comfortable in their world than she's ever felt among humans
...until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter who braves
the ever-present animal rights protesters outside the lab to see
what's really going on inside. When an explosion tears apart the
lab, severly injuring Isabel and 'liberating' the apes to an
unknown destination, John's human interest piece turns into the
story of a lifetime.
