Lucy, by Laurence Gonzales, questions what it means to be human. Even more, it questions how we treat those we consider to be less than human. Lucy is not what she appears to be. While she looks totally human, she is not. Does that mean that she has no rights? This biological thriller dives right into the controversy between evolutionists and creationists.
Lucy also tells the story of a young woman, a teenager, learning how to deal with the world and find her place in it.
