Ben must acclimate to a new school; handle his romantic feelings for the daughter of his father’s boss; define his relationship with Zan, the chimpanzee who becomes almost his "HALF" brother Before we see the rest of the presentation lets hear a little about this novel. "Oh well, Jennifer said, with a careless shrug. She looked from Hugh to me, then brushed my hand. Looks like it's just us, then" (163). She feels upset that Hugh can't come to her party so she pretends that she will have fun with Ben. As well it foreshadows that Jennifer will use Ben to make Hugh jealous in the future.
"Not everyone will agree, Ben, We've opened Pandora's box. We're going to get all kinds of publicity, and we won't be able to control whether it's good or bad. Get ready." (93)
This foreshadows that the media will play a big part with project Zan and that people will be against Project Zan later on in the story.
"He needs to be scared of me," said Dad. "He needs to know I'm the dominant male."
This foreshadows that the dad will not be very sentimental towards Zan in the future and will mostly be concerned about his project.
