Caged Book

Sorry, the publisher has caged this audiobook!

Caging audiobooks is not consistent with our indie values. Libro.fm is one of the few places where every audiobook is DRM-free (DRM means Digital Rights Management), which we like to call cage-free. Cage-free fits our fiercely independent nature and it means you can listen to our audiobooks anytime, anywhere, on any device with no restrictions.

Love that we are cage-free? Spread the word and #chooseindie

Colibri

Description

She was little and quick and pretty. Her mother nicknamed her Colibrí, Spanish for "Hummingbird." At age four she was kidnapped, torn from her parents on a crowded bus in Guatemala City. Since then she's traveled with "Uncle," the ex-soldier and wandering beggar who has renamed her Rosa. Uncle has always told Rosa that he searched for her parents but had no success. There's almost no chance Rosa will ever find them--but Rosa still remembers and longs for them.

When she was young, Uncle consulted fortune-tellers who told him that Rosa would bring him luck--a treasure big enough to last him all his life. So he's kept her with him. Together, they have traveled from town to town in the highlands of Guatemala, scraping out a living, hoping to find the treasure. Eight years have passed, and Rosa has turned twelve. No treasure has been found, and Uncle has almost given up hope. When he turns angry and desperate, danger threatens Rosa from all sides--but especially from Uncle himself.
