Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Endangered (Hardcover)
I'm 70 years old, and I love Jonathan Franzen, Alice Munro, Adam Hochschild, Katherine Boo, Jonathan Haidt, David Remnick, and many other contemporary writers. But this book for teens is a revelation. Somehow the author manages to fill an intensely involving novel with fascinating details about bonobos and Democratic Republic of Congo. The protagonist is completely convincing and compelling. I've already bought three copies and expect to get more, to urge on friends and family members of all ages.
