Endangered by Eliot Schrefer is a story of survival. Sophie is spending the summer with her mother in the Congo, where her mom runs a sanctuary for bonobos. When an armed revolution breaks out in the politically-unstable country, the sanctuary is attacked. Sophie and the bonobos escape into the jungle, where they struggle to to find food and stay alive.
