This is an exciting and at times, disturbing read. It's not for the fainthearted as it contains some graphic accounts of violence. It will appeal to fans of survival and adventure stories, and also animal lovers (who aren't too squeamish!). It also provides an informative account of the war torn Congo, which has endured horrific violence in recent history.
You will find this book in the LRC on the shelf at "SCH Young Adults"
