A Book We Love: Endangered

Veronica, Columbine Library

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.
