In these chapters, she talked about a lot of things. For example, in chapter 8 it talked about a chimpanzee she knows named Flo. It talked about Flo's family and her life. In chapter 9 it talked a lot about her traveling and giving lectures, writing for the public, and for scientists. She talks about to observe animals or insects like a caterpillar. In the book it was telling a story about this robin and it got to feel comfortable with her, so he started coming in her room, and he made a nest. I thought it was really cool to read about this, because it's just different and you don't hear about stuff like that. What was really sad was she talked about using animals for testing products that we use. Chapter 10 talked about a lot of negative things, such as, chimps disappearing, cutting down forests, a chimp being sold at a market, chimps in zoos, circuses, used for testing, and chimps being hunted. It did have one positive thing, it was talking about a sanctuary that help chimps and it is like a safe place. Yeah, so this chapter wasn't very happy and had a LOT of negative stuff. In the last chapter of the book ( chapter 11 ) it felt like it was kind of trying to inform us and persuade us. It was saying chimps are a lot like humans and humans are destroying nature. But it talked mainly about the environment, scientist are saying its hopeless for us it is probably almost impossible to recover. It mentioned that everything is linked, from all over the world. She has this project called Roots and Shoots, it is just to help the environment around you better for nonhuman animals, one another, or the community. Jane goes to Gombe when she can, even if it is for just a short period of time. My overall opinion of this book was it was really good. I like how it started off when she was young, and how it ended with her kind of older. This book was mainly positive and I would recommend it to pre-teens and up, because even though it was an easy read it still had a really good story. I think the overall lesson is to never give up and to always follow your dreams. Jane did that in her life, even when she wasn't sure what was going to happen next, she kept fighting and working for what she wanted. I think this lesson applies to EVERYONE, no matter what age you can still follow your dreams.
