Tay is 14 and she is a girl with a secret. Officially documented as 'Taylor Five' she is the clone child of a globally famous scientist. Like her gene mother, she will grow up to have phenomenal physical and mental abilities. She is an experiment in the corporate race to create a perfect being. For now she is living with her adopted family who work in the rainforests of Borneo rehabilitating orang utans and returning them to the wild. 'Uncle' is one orang-utan who has chosen stay, he's almost like one of the family. Then terrorists strike the refuge, killing her parents, and Tay sets out on a harrowing adventure accompanied by 'Uncle'. Her already extraordinary existence becomes even more fascinating as Uncle's huge intelligence and uncannily ' human' behaviour develops an unshakeable bond between them as he tries to help her to safety.
