    It's been interesting reading the comments about teaching Frankenstein. At the
    8th grade level that I teach, I use the novel Eva by Peter Dickinson. It has
    similar issues and a far easier vocabulary. For those who have not read it, it
    involves a girl's mind being transplanted into the body of a chimpanzee. Many
    issues arise as the girl wonders what happened to the mind of the chimp, an
    animal she knew before her accident. How does she relate now? To the world of
    humans or the world of animals? My science teacher on my team recommended it
    and we have a class set.
