What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Lisa: “This book is about a mouse receiving medical treatment that increases his IQ. Then a human becomes the test case for the same treatment. It makes the reader think about the ethics regarding medical science. It is also relevant to making the reader consider other big issues such as the worth of disabled individuals to our society. As a kid, I really loved the book.”
