"Inspired by Farook's own early roots in Sri Lanka, the vibrant island-country setting is so lush you can practically picture the greenery and taste the tropical breadfruit....lovers of animals and adventure are in for an entertaining ride." --Booklist
Chaya, a nobleman's rebellious, outspoken, no-nonsense daughter, just can't resist the shiny temptations the king's palace has to offer. But playing Robin Hood for her impoverished community doesn't come without risks, and when Chaya steals the queen's jewels from a bedside table--a messy getaway jeopardizes the life of a close friend.
After an equally haphazard prison break, Chaya barely escapes on the king's prized elephant! With leeches and revolution lurking in the jungle, she leads her companions on a thrilling adventure. But after leaving her village as a thief, can she return as a hero? Or will Chaya's sticky fingers be the beginning--or the end--of everything for the intrepid gang?
