School ended on Friday and I came home with a big bag of books to read this summer. Yesterday I started a book called Endangered by Eliot Schrefer. It's one of our newly added titles in the reading room, and it's got me hooked already. It takes place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country that's struggling with poor leadership and corruption. Sophie, who's fourteen, is spending the summer there with her mom, who runs a sanctuary for a type of ape called bonobos. Sophie buys a young bonobo with the intent on rescuing him, but that proves to be more of a danger to the bonobos than she thought. I have the feeling that more danger lies in the pages ahead! Can't wait to finish it.
