We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves; Karen Joy Fowler

A Psychologist and his wife raise their newborn daughter and a newborn chimpanzee at the same time as a psychological experiment.  The novel is told from the viewpoint of the daughter looking back at her childhood and how her “twin sister” affected her and her relationship with her parents and her brother.  Interesting tale.  Very original.
