Publisher Description

From National Book Award Finalist Eliot Schrefer comes the compelling tale of a girl who must save a group of bonobos -- and herself -- from a violent coup.Congo is a dangerous place, even for people who are trying to do good.When Sophie has to visit her mother at her sanctuary for bonobos, she's not thrilled to be there. Then Otto, an infant bonobo, comes into her life, and for the first time she feels responsible for another creature.But peace does not last long for Sophie and Otto. When an armed revolution breaks out in the country, the sanctuary is attacked, and the two of them must escape unprepared into the jungle. Caught in the crosshairs of a lethal conflict, they must struggle to keep safe, to eat, and to live. In ENDANGERED, Eliot Schrefer plunges us into a heart-stopping exploration of the things we do to survive, the sacrifices we make to help others, and the tangled geography that ties us all, human and animal, together.

Stunning and mind opening

If you don’t already love Bonobos you will after reading this wonderfully candid novel of a teen rescuing her Oscar, a wounded, abused Bonobo and he rescuing her right back during another bloody uprising in the Congo. The bonds of friendship and love are wrapped tightly around this question of species superiority and the fine line of DNA. Morality plays and heartstrings tugged, this is a book that no one should pass up.
