One of a kind and totally unique, this story hooked me from the get go. Autism researcher Jane Dixon, has been testing a virus on rats and is amazed to discover that one of them, aptly named Einstein, has started developing amazing intelligence, he can count to 1,000, understand words, and can type out his thoughts. She decides to test it out on a dog and is amazed when he develops intelligence too. When she finally discovers that it only works when the test subjects are approaching the end of their adolescence she freaks out; her autistic son is rapidly approaching puberty. Against all ethics and morality and injects her son. What comes next is a full blown scandal, the CDC gets involved, it becomes transmittable and worse of all it has unforeseen side effects. Can she save her son? Vegetarians, Vegans, and animal lovers should especially enjoy this book as the animals continue to become more and more intelligent. An enjoyable read.
I received this book for free from the author in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
