A knock on the door at 2 a.m. begins the mystery that leads Rachel, her family, and her friends on a wild adventure! A mysterious scientist delivers a top secret baby chimp to Rachel's family. "For only about a week," explains the scientist who makes a quick departure. Learning to deal with this exceptionally intelligent chimp and keeping it a secret at the same time requires careful planning. When the scientist doesn't show up to reclaim his ape after a week, the Stelson family has a new problem: what to do with a top secret baby chimp!
Animal antics, genetic engineering, inventions, endangered species, and murder produce an incredibly exciting mix in this humorous story about family, friendship, science projects, and making tough decisions.
