A Book We Love: Endangered
Endangered by Eliot Schrefer
A teen girl rescues a young orphaned bonobo in the Democratic Republic of Congo, saving him from a cruel future. When her world explodes because of a rebel attack on her compound, Sophie saves herself by living and traveling with the bonobos. This endangered species is related to chimpanzees and shares 99% of humans’ DNA! The story is gripping, moving, poignant, and one you’ll hate to put down.
