Half BrotherBook - 2010
From Library Staff
This is not your ordinary coming-of-age story. The book draws its inspiration from real chimpanzee research studies, and found it absolutely engrossing to explore the ethical quandaries of animal research from 13-year-old Ben’s perspective. Also available in eBook.
