Endangered is at its best when describing the interactions between bonobos and humans. A great introduction to the Congo and to this amazing animal for teens. If you have any interest in wildlife, a must read.

This book has been receiving many recommendations in the library and publisher's literature. With good cause. It's a Finalist for the 2012 National Book Award, Young People's Literature. Sophie, a young American girl, visits her Mother at a Bonobo sanctuary in the Congo. Her first day there, she adopts a young bonobo being treated cruelly. Soon war breaks out and she and the young bonobo, Otto, must make their way to safety. Very exiting, suspenseful and has some realistic details. Perfect for mature tweens and teens wanting to know about environmental causes and the world around them.

This a very well written teen novel that educates us on the bonobos while at the same time emotionally involving its readers into the story of violence in the Congo. While some parts are difficult to read in terms of the extreme violence taking place, the story is so enthralling you'll want to finish reading it in one seating.
