I read the book Colibri by Ann Cameron When i first picked this book the cover page grabbed my attention I remembered seeing this book before and i believe i even intended to read it but never did My favorite character would be Tzun n, spanish meaning for hummingbird The reason she is my favorite character is because she is very observant, she always look at her surroundings which is kind of the way i am My favorite part would be when a man came and have her 100 pesos and said it was just for he [...]

    6. I think I read this book every time I visited the library It is wonderfully told, the culture and setting feels authentic and vibrant.



    7. With nothing but positive reviews, it s not surprising that Colibr was a great read It s a well written and engrossing novel Told from the point of view of Tzun n, a 12 year old girl, students will find it easy to connect with the young narrator It s not a light read instead, it offers a coming of age story that shows a young girl forced to make decisions that we would hope only adults might have to confront Yet this is part of the power of the book Often our students do have to deal with situat [...]

    9.

    11. Reading Colibri, I found it difficult to put the book down The beginning had me wondering why this poor girl is with her uncle and what happened to her family However, the book soon reveals that this man is not her uncle and he is involving her in unscrupulous tasks 12 year old Colibri lives an unstable existence, not knowing when and where she will be able to lay her head at night nor when she will have her next meal Her uncle has governed her life since he found her when she was four years old [...]


    12. Colibri was a great book to read as it tells a tragic story of Colibri, a 12 year old girl It was very easy to connect to the young narrator because of her voice and determination but is a rough read as it shows the passion and force of decisions that this young child has to go through When Colibri was young she was kidnapped and the man who found her forced her to call him uncle Uncle promises to help Colibri, who he renamed Rosa , find her family but as the story goes on it turns into a differ [...]

    14. Most children have a deep fear of being kidnapped The threat of being snatched away from the comfort of home is the motivation behind children staying close to their family in crowded places, at least it was for Tzunun Chumil Tzanun is a young Guatemalan girl who got abruptly taken away from her mother while traveling on a bus at the age of four She is afterwards raised by Uncle , who half hazardly takes care of her in the exchange for help begging The story takes place around the time Tzanun is [...]


    15. Colibri was a very compelling story about a young girl who was kidnapped from her family at a young age The girl was found by a man who she travelled with throughout Guatemala The man made Colibri call him by the name of Uncle Uncle was very poor and frequently begged and or stole from others in order to provide for himself He used Colibri as a way to help him take advantage of people who were unaware of his tactics Colibri hated this because she was a very honest person who had morals The young [...]


    16.

    21.

    22. I truly enjoyed this novel The story was daringly original and the characters were complex, authentic, compelling and most importantly, fun to watch The antagonist Baltasar Om, is one of the most intriguing villains I ve run across in contemporary literature or at all for that matter He has a certain devilish charm about him and is not completely despicable despite his obviously dastardly character traits The book also had a levity about it despite the tragic subject matter contained within the [...]


    23.

    24. In Guatemala, twelve year old Tzun n travels with a man she calls Uncle in search of a treasure which fortune tellers have convinced Uncle she will bring him Tzun n manages to escape Uncle and learn the truth about her past.I enjoyed Colibr because I had never read any fictional stories from Guatemala before this one I could visualize the Guatemalan cities of Nebaj and San Sebasti n because of the descriptions of the people, food, and the sights and smells of the marketplaces I was reminded that [...]


    25. Colibri is about a girl who is stolen from her parents as a little girl, but raised to think that they didn t want her I m not going to lie, this book isn t one of those that sucked me in and took me aware from the first few pages It took me about a 1 4 of the way in before I became invested and wanted to see how Tzunun s story ends Colibri took me on a roller coaster of emotions I felt anxious, sad, confused, angry, and satisified The book creates many questions from the start, but throughout t [...]


    26. The intro to this book doesn t allow one to know much about Colibri better known to her uncle as Rosa What we do find out is she has lost both of her parents because she was kidnapped and must now live with her uncle Even though there seems to be some type of indication that he really isn t her uncle, this may be something that I was reading into than what it really is The unfortunate part of the story is that she is never able to be reunited with her parents which almost makes me wonder where [...]
