Swimming Monkeys: Genesis Reaches Quarterfinals in BookLife Prize In Fiction

“A highly original premise swiftly draws readers into Hadden’s novel, the first in a trilogy. Seventeen-year-old Ryan Webster has been entrusted with an unusual responsibility by his beloved, dying grandfather—a renowned primatologist. Ryan learns that his great-grandfather once discovered a new species of monkey, which he chose to keep hidden from the world. Now that the monkeys’ jungle habitat is being threatened, Ryan has inherited the task of protecting them… Hadden’s work is a thrilling adventure with substance and memorably eccentric characters that cleverly integrates conflicts between creationism and evolution.”
