Fourteen-year-old Lucy's father is a primatologist living in the Congo and her mother is a bonobo. When her parents are killed by guerrillas, she is found by Jenny, another primatologist, who takes her to safety in the U.S. and enrolls her in school. But once her origin as a genetically bioengineered hybrid is discovered, it remains to be seen how safe she really is. A decently written enjoyable suspense novel; has definite teen appeal because the point of view alternates back and forth from Lucy to Jenny, and depicts Lucy's adjustment to being an American teen in a typical high school.

Charles Sounds original, at least.
