Here’s an excerpt from my review:
This is a book that will grab you by the heartstrings and leave you gasping out loud. Heartbreaking, tragic, and triumphant, you will want to reach into the pages and help Luc and the chimpanzees in turn. There are no easy answers in Threatened, and I think that’s what I love most about it. It’s a story about tragedy, triumph, conservation, AIDs, eco-tourism, Gabon, imperialism, the past, and the future.
Perfect for high schools and middle schools, I’d love to see this read across disciplines. It brings together language, science, ethics, current events, history, and so much more. It will spark conversation and maybe even action.
