When Gerry, 14, and his parents are flying to the African savannah, their plane crashes. When Gerry resumes consciousness, he discovers that he has come to live in the body of a baboon that is part of the group that his parents are researching. He uses his human intellect and powers of reason to ensure his survival and growing acceptance by the troop; he also documents his gradual loss of his ability to count and read and track the passing days. After eight months as a baboon, a terrifying incident with a leopard triggers the teen's re-entry into his own body. The author soundly grounds his novel in accurate scientific detail about baboons.
