    One of the best non-fiction books I have ever read!

    I have read a lot of different non-fiction animal books and this is absolutely one of the best! Andrew Westoll is an excellent writer and really keeps your interest! This book is not at all dry like some non-fiction books can be. This story is truly amazing! This should be required reading. It would be impossible to not be changed after reading this book.

    Full of Heartbreak and Hope

    Andrew Westoll takes us inside a chimpanzee sanctuary, where he spends months getting to know those who live there. Many of these chimps were rescued from biomedical research labs. The abuse they suffered is heartbreaking. Their resilience and willingness to forgive humans is astounding. No matter which side of the fence you're on with animal research, this is a must read.

    ** I received this ebook as an advanced readers copy from the publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt through NetGalley. **
