    Fascinating

    This is a great book to read if you ever wondered what goes on behind the intelligent eyes of an ape, or where the dividing line between man and ape really lies. Through interviews, personal journals, and news articles based on real chimpanzees, Preston lays out the riveting story of a chimp, imprinted upon humans as a newborn in Africa and subsequently raised as a human in suburban Boston. As the chimp grows older, the family and community begin to recognize the extraordinary humanity that she displays. Anecdotes, informal games, and experiments uncover the intelligence and human characteristics of this amazing chimpanzee. A touching story that draws you in from the very first page and makes you question your beliefs about "lowly" animals.

    An Emotional book

    Jennie was an excellent book that tells a remarkable but sad story of a chimpanzee taken from the wild and raised in a human family. The story is also sending an important message to people; Wild animals belong in the wild and maybe they are cute and cuddley when they are babies but when they get older their natural instincts come out sooner or later.
