Monkey Girl (Google eBook)
What should we teach our children about where we come from?
From bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Humes comes a dramatic story of faith, science, and courage unlike any since the famous Scopes Monkey Trial. Monkey Girl takes you behind the scenes of the recent war on evolution in Dover, Pennsylvania, when the town's school board decision to confront the controversy head-on thrust its students, then the entire community, onto the front lines of America's culture wars. Told from the perspectives of all sides of the battle, it is a riveting true story about an epic court case on the teaching of "intelligent design," and what happens when science and religion collide.

Review: Monkey Girl: Evolution, Education, Religion, and the Battle for America's SoulUser Review - Sarah Zost - Goodreads
I live in a nearby school district, and was in high school while this was going on at Dover. Great to read a more inside look at the situation vs. what played out in the newspaper and on TV. Read full review
Review: Monkey Girl: Evolution, Education, Religion, and the Battle for America's SoulUser Review - Jennifer - Goodreads
Three and a half stars. Some parts of the book were very hard to get through due to detail, detail, detail-which isn't a bad thing, just hard to get excited about. The sections on the evolution vs creationism and the actual trial were fascinating. Read full review
