You are a young photojournalist in Africa tracking the seriously endangered mountain gorilla species. You have heard that a few silverbacks have been spotted in the Impenetrable Forest, but the country is dangerous. The African safari holds many threats, not least of all poachers and their traps. When a young African girl goes missing, your choices get even more difficult. Will you be able to document the gorillas' plight and help save the magnificent species? Or will your safari adventure to Africa be cut short by a menacing movie crew?
Middle grade readers will navigate the ultimate African safari adventure, learn about diminishing gorilla populations, poachers, and other African wildlife, all while having fun reading and choosing.
