The One and Only Ivan, Katherine Applegate. Written by a "mall gorilla," this story is based on actual events. A fast read, it wasn't as "tree-huggery" as I was expecting. Yes, you sympathize with the captured animals, but they don't feel sorry for themselves, so it's more heartwarming than guilt-inspiring.
