When Sophie rescues Otto, a baby bonobo clinging to life, her world changes forever. Until then, she had never understood her mother's decision to stay and run an animal sanctuary in one of the toughest places in Africa.

But one night, while her mother is away, rebel soldiers attack. To escape, Sophie must follow her heart into danger - and find a way to keep herself and Otto alive.

I must admit, I had my doubts about this book at first, but as I got further into the storyline, I got more and more hooked. The book was slow at first, wasn't very interesting, but after a few chapters, things started picking up. The book is definitely good for an age group of around 13+, as there are some disturbing parts that younger children might not enjoy. I haven't heard of Bonobos before, and in the book it sounded like they were actually more intelligent that regular apes, which was a surprising fact.

I once did an essay on world poverty, and Africa was the most mentioned country, but in this book the situation was worse than I thought. In this book however, the theme moved from poverty to civil war, which was even worse. It is astounding and terrifying to read about a country that already isn't doing very well for itself, and how a large tribe of people can bring the whole country to it's knees, and how that can bring suffering, rape, and murder that just makes me sick to the stomach.

The book was amazingly detailed, it was very easy to visualize the environment mentioned! The book seems to be highly accurate, but no so much as for it to become non-fictional. While the book was enjoyable, it also made me lose track of time and as a result of that it felt like the book went on forever, so I won't be selling or boxing up this book for a while, but I'm not as keen to re-read the book as I am with other ones.

Overall, this is a good book, it is detailed, accurate, and was a very good read. Happy reading!

It's up to the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences to find out why these women are vanishing, but agents Books and Braun have their own challenges.

There's a turncoat with nefarious plans within the Ministry itself, and the ... more...
