Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Schrefer has crafted a story that is both eye-opening and touching.
A story that seems historical but is very much contemporary. Through the eyes of one young girl, the reader gets a glimpse into the deep-seeded challenges of a conflict-riddled third-world country. Sophie has come to stay at her mother's wild animal preserve in the heart of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Being biracial complicates things a bit Congolese mother, white American father as she's seen as foreign both in America and in the Congo, but she's learned to deal with that.
What she doesn't expect to happen on this visit is falling in love with an injured baby bonobo that she can't help but buy from a local bush-meat trader.
Endangered (Ape Quartet #1) (Compact Disc)
This spontaneous act sets off a series of events that leaves Sophie feeling guilty and conflicted. And things take a turn for the worse when just after her mother sets off to release some bonobos into the wild, the Congo once again erupts into devastating violence. As Sophie struggles to keep herself and her bonobo, Otto, alive, she's forced to face the consequences of her own actions as well as the horrible results of war. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I really loved this book: the author writes wonderfully, and his portrayal of Sophie, who matures slowly and progressively through the telling of her story, was terrific.
Most endearing was the increasingly tight bond she formed with Otto, an infant bonobo she rescued very early in the book. As their relationship grew, so did Sophie's maturity. Given that the intended audience for Endangered is YA, Mr. Schrefer did an excellent job of telling a what would otherwise be a complex story without sacrificing too much in the way of drama. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. Endangered is a riveting, realistic survival, adventure, coming-of-age story.
The nail-biting suspense is smoothly fused with historical information on the Democratic Republic of the Congo and beautiful descriptions of the geography.
I really appreciated that author, Eliot Schrefer, did not idealize the efforts to save endangered species or simplify the complex problems in wartorn, poverty ridden Democratic Republic of the Congo. As protagonist Sophie quickly learns, nothing ever has a simple solution or a simple cause. Like many 14 year olds, Sophie would rather spend her summer hanging out with her friends than her mother. She resents being forced to leave Miami to go live in the jungle of the Congo where her mother runs a sanctuary for bonobos.
A sincere, but foolish, mistake on her first day in the Congo results in Sophie becoming a surrogate mother to a baby bonobo.

Sophie did not plan on spending her summer babysitting, and little Otto requires almost 24 hour care. I expected Threatened to be very similar to Endangered , but I was wrong. Endangered is about an American girl visiting her mother in a Congolese bonobo sanctuary when a civil war breaks out. Threatened , on the other hand, is about an orphan boy from Gabon who goes into the wild with a professor in order t Schrefer is an incredibly talented writer; his settings feel authentic in that he makes far away places seem very close to home.
Threatened , on the other hand, is about an orphan boy from Gabon who goes into the wild with a professor in order to learn more about chimpanzees. But these books are more than their settings and the animals. They teach us about what it means to be human. Threatened, in particular, made me think about humanity's evolution and the difficulties that come from living in the wild. I couldn't help but think about how far humanity has strayed from nature.

Even when Luc feels that he wants for nothing, he is ashamed that he still holds material desires. This book makes readers think critically, and it would be a great book to use in the classroom. Aug 02, Sharman Russell rated it really liked it. I really felt plunged into a different world, not only of chimpanzees in the jungle, but of being an AIDs orphan in the West African country of Gabon.
Some initial details were horrifying--child thieves being threatened with having their hands cut off. I was glad that most of the story deals not with human brutalities but with the matter-of-fact realities of nonhuman nature--how leopards kill chimps, how chimps kill each other, how one animal eats another. The world of chimpanzees is also full o I really felt plunged into a different world, not only of chimpanzees in the jungle, but of being an AIDs orphan in the West African country of Gabon.
