Keena Roberts split her childhood between a private school in Philadelphia and "Baboon Camp," a remote island in Botswana where her primatologist parents worked several months out of the year. Her resulting memoir, a story of a fish-out-of-water girl most comfortable with animals, is funny, touching, and deeply compelling.
