The Lovereading4Kids comment
A thrilling debut novel explores tribal behaviour and the dangerous consequences of it in an action packed story of two competing monkey tribes. A troop of aggressive Langur monkeys make a savage raid on the Rhesus monkeys killing them mercilessly. For one young Langur, the brutality is a step too far. Mico is appalled by the violence and steps in to help the surviving Rhesus. But crossing the tribal line is a dangerous act. What seemed like the right action to Mico sets him at odds with his own corrupt leadership and the secrets they are so keen to defend. His fight for survival is tense and compelling. ~ Julia Eccleshare
