Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Thirteen-year-old Joey Willis is used to being left out of conversations. Though shes been deaf since the age of six, Joeys mother has never allowed her to learn sign language. She strains to read the lips of those around her, but often fails.
Everything changes when Joey meets Dr. Charles Mansell and his baby chimpanzee, Sukari. Her new friends use sign language to communicate, and Joey secretly begins to learn to sign. Spending time with Charlie and Sukari, Joey has never been happier. She even starts making friends at school for the first time. But as Joeys world blooms with possibilities, Charlies and Sukaris choices begin to narrow—until Sukaris very survival is in doubt.
