Written as a fictional oral history, Jennie tells the story of the Archibalds, the Boston-area family that took in the chimp from 1965 to 1975, and the ensuing family and scientific debates.
Jennie's story is hilarious, poignant, and, in times, desperately sad. Based on accounts of six different cases of chimps in human surroundings, Jennie will make you laugh, fill you with wonder, and make your heart go out to a touching and warm character unlike any other - Jennie.

This is my second time reading this, first time was years ago. hearing it acted out only made the story even more emotionally trying. Great job.
