A gripping journey into the world of chimpanzees — and the life of an African boy whose fate becomes entwined with them — from National Book Award Finalist Eliot Schrefer

An African boy living on the streets escapes his jailer by heading into the forest with a scientist who is not entirely what he seems. They've come to study chimpanzees, but when the scientist disappears, the boy must fend for himself — and then join forces with the chimps to save their habitat from unwelcome intruders.
