I feel mixed about this book. First, it is about a bonobo sanctuary in the Congo and a Congolese/American teenager and war. The writing was good and the bonobo facts were pretty solid, but I was a little troubled by a white American man telling the story. I liked how the conflicts were presented in shades of gray, but I would like to hear a similar story from someone from Congo. There is a good amount of violence so this might not be for younger or more sensitive YA readers.
