This book is about a girl who got in a car accident. They could not fix her body so they put her brain into a chimps body. Now Eva must live her life in a totally different body. But Eva doesn't mind. She has grown up with chimps all her life, her father is a scientist who studies chimps. But just because she don't care, doesn't mean her mother doesn't. Eva's mother is very disturbed that her daughter is so different. This book is about how Eva struggles to keep a normal life and keep her mother happy.
The main external conflict in this book is Eva vs. the media. Eva if fine with her new body, but many other people are obsessed with it. They think that this new scientific discovery is so important that they are willing to do anything for the chance to study it. Now Eva has to deal with the paparazzi as well as her mother. Which brings me to the main internal conflict. Eva doesn't want to hurt her mother, but she also wants to be her new chimp self. Eva now has to choose between her instincts and her mothers happiness.
I would rate this book three stars. I would rate it that because it was over all a good book, but there were way too many dull spots. I found myself avoiding reading because it did not interest me. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books about science and nature.
