Heart-pounding, tear-jerking, soul-searching,
This review is from: Endangered (Kindle Edition)
Endangered is not just a gripping thriller; it's also beautifully, thoughtfully written. Eliot Schrefer's descriptions of bonobos are fascinating and heartwarming, and he's created a protagonist with far more complexity and nuance that your average young adult novel heroine. As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed Endangered, but the pace barrels forward in way that I'm sure would appeal to teens as well. This is that rare YA book that you will savor as both a satisfying work of literature and a window into an often-forgotten part of the world. Who needs mermaids when you've got much more magical creatures in the real world--bonobos!
