Overview

Glee Granger has spent the last eight years of her life entirely focused on Sema, a gorilla that Glee has been teaching sign language. Though Sema isn't the first gorilla to use sign language, Glee has pushed their interaction to breakthrough levels. Technically, however, Sema belongs to the zoo where she was born—and the zoo wants its gorilla back. Unwilling to be separated from Sema, Glee joins the zoo staff and sees that it's not as drastic a change as she first thought. That is until a near death experience overturns everything Glee thought she knew about humans and animals, the seen and the unseen, the spoken and the unspoken.

Now Glee has become the student and Sema the teacher, but will Glee listen?

I LOVE THIS BOOK, I DID START OFF READING IT JUST BECAUSE IT HAD A MONKEY ON THE COVER, BUT THEN AS I STARTED TO READ IT, I STARTED TO LEARN SO MUCH FROM IT. THERE ARE SO MANY SITUATIONS THAT OCCUR IN THE BOOK THAT HAVE TO DEAL WITH REAL LIFE SITUATIONS. I DID READ THE BOOK IN HIGH SCHOOL, BUT I AM RECOMMENDING THAT EVERYONE EXPECIALLY YOUNG TEENAGE GIRLS READ IT.

If you are an animal lover, which I am, you should read this book. It will captivate you. I was heart broken, but I loved the book. It is amazing to me what animals really understand. I can see how Glee relates to Sema as a human. Her characteristics are that of a child. You will fall in love with her.

As an animal person of any kind I must say I was not to sure about this book, Once I started it I was unable to put it down. This book made me laugh and made me cry. If you know any one who is an anmial lover and is not a believer in the works that God can do please get this book for them. I felt as if I was right there with her. A must read.

The subject of animals communicating with humans through a common language has always intrigued me. There are other books on the subject which provide interesting and enjoyable reading. I bought this book thinking that is what I was going to get. I didn't realize it was in the Christian fiction genre, which was my fault. And, it did deal with the aforesaid communication. But the story, rather than being like a fine wine, was innundated with the main character's constant complaining and obstinancy, so that the book took on the feeling of a continuous whine. I liked the first 2/3 of the story although the heroine became increasingly difficult to deal with. The last 1/3 was predictable, innundated with more of the same complaining and crabbing. By the last chapter the question was not how would the story end but who would continue to put up with such self-centered and self-justified behavoir. To go by this book, no matter how anti-social the behavior is, there is always someone willing to ignore the abuse. By the number of books this author has written it is obvious she has an adoring audience. But it doesn't include me.
