A Justice Hustlers Novel She´s beautiful, unpredictable-and on the run from dangerous men. But this ex-side chick is ready to risk everything to help others in trouble . . . Fed up with her married Miami boyfriend, savvy Dulce has no problem stealing his drug-dealer stash and fleeing to her family in the Caribbean. But when she gets bored in rural Santo Domingo, she escapes on a sugar daddy adventure to Puerto Rico. Her new life is one endless party, until she´s caught in Hurricane Maria-and witnesses the brutal collision of colonization and climate change, as well as the international vultures who plunder the tragedy for a financial killing, making shady use of relief funds to devastate the island even more. Broke, traumatized, and stranded, Dulce´s only chance to get back to New York may be a sexy, crusading journalist who´s been pursuing her. But is she hustling him or falling for him? Meanwhile, New York-based mastermind thief Marisol already has her hands full fleecing a ruthless CEO who´s stealing her family´s land in Puerto Rico, while trying to get her relatives out alive after the hurricane. An extra member in her crew could be game-changing, but she´s wary of Dulce´s unpredictability and reputation for drama. Still, Dulce´s determination to get justice draws Marisol in, along with her formidable Lower East Side Women´s Health Clinic´s heist squad. But their race-against-the-clock plan is soon complicated by powerful men who turn deadly when ex-side chicks step out of the shadows and demand to call the shots . . . Praise for Aya de León and her novels ´´Staking out space for women of color in the heist-fiction genre, Aya de León´s smart, sly writing is a knockout.´´ -Andi Zeisler, Bitch magazine ´´This well-written and enjoyable installment in de León´s unique, feminist, urban crime-fiction series . . . infuses satisfying power in both plot and character.´´ -Booklist on The Boss, STARRED review
Why fit in when you were born to stand out? When a storm separates a young eagle from his family, he takes up residence with a group of chickens. Poking fun at his crooked beak, the way he flaps his wings, and his white feathered head, the eagle is ashamed and embarrassed. Soon, he discovers even more differences. Unlike the frightened chickens, he does not fear the sly fox. While the chickens are happy to live on the ground, he yearns to fly. Although the rooster insists that he was born to keep his feet on the ground, the sight of two soaring eagles changes everything. From this delightful tale listeners learn to reach out for their full potential and let their spirits fly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carl Sommer.
