Descripción: An honest and stirring novel about the choices made by young environmental activists, and the balancing act between consequence and triumphMalia has had a privileged upbringing in Indonesia, but since her Indonesian father died, her Canadian mother wants to return to her own family on the other side of the world. Malia is determined to stay. Indonesia is her home, and she loves it. Besides, if she leaves, how can she continue to fight for her country’s precious rainforests?Ari knows he is lucky to be going to school and competing on the chess team, even if it means an endless round of chores at his uncle’s restaurant. Back in his home village, he and his cousin Suni dreamed about getting a chance like this. But now he is here without her, and the guilt is crushing him. As if that weren’t enough, he’s horribly worried about Ginger Juice, his uncle’s orangutan. The too-small cage where she lives is clearly hurting her body and her mind, but where else can she go? The rainforest where she was born is a palm oil plantation now.In Berani, Governor General’s Award finalist Michelle Kadarusman spins together three perspectives: Malia, who is prepared to risk anything for her activism, Ari, who knows the right path but fears what it will cost, and Ginger Juice, the caged orangutan who still remembers the forest and her mother. The choices the young people make will have consequences for themselves, for Ginger Juice, and for others, if they are brave enough—or reckless enough—to choose.ReviewPraise for Berani2022 Junior Library Guild selection2022 Quill & Quire “Our Environment: A Helping Hand” Feature2022 The Children’s Book Council “August: Hot Off the Press” feature2022 CTV Your Morning “Back to school books” Feature49th Shelf “Most Anticipated: Our 2022 Books for Young Readers Fall Preview” Feature49th Shelf “New Fall 2022 Books” Feature“A stirring introduction to the plight faced by orangutans.”―Kirkus Reviews“The expansive story, nimbly told from both human and orangutan viewpoints, gives glimpses into different class, race, and even species experiences while introducing readers to life in Indonesia and the plight of the orangutans…A compelling call to action and a crucial reminder that, while doing what is right is not always easy, it is always worthwhile.”―Booklist“Kadarusman’s novel exudes the positive message that everyone can make a difference while also reminding readers that there are always consequences – good or bad - to the choices one makes and that many situations are not as black and white as we perceive….Highly Recommended”―CM Magazine“Berani by Michelle Kadarusman is a perfect book for international schools… A fantastic read that shows kids (and readers of all ages) to believe in their values and that they, too, can change the world.”―The International Educator“Berani is a powerful middle-grade story about animal activism set in Indonesia…The story is exciting and engaging, with strong character development….
