Publisher Description

“A riveting survival adventure with an important message.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Imara and Bobo are two children living with a band of rebel soldiers in the African jungle. When an orphaned gorilla is brought to their camp they swear to protect it. But in their war-ravaged world, can they ever find true safety?

Deep in the heart of the Congo, a baby gorilla is captured by a group of rebel soldiers. Imara and Bobo are also prisoners in the rebels’ camp. When they learn that the gorilla will be sold into captivity, they swear to return it to the wild before it’s too late. But the consequences of getting caught are too terrible to think about. Will the bond between the gorilla and the children give them the courage they need to escape?

This book was AMAZING! Gill Lewis weaves emotion, suspense, and peacefulness through this book of inspiration. I may be 11, but if it has such an extraordinary effect on me, I assume it will you too. I HIGHLY recommend this book for people who love gorillas, brief action, and heartwarming books!
