Fruit of the Drunken Tree

"Seven-year-old Chula and her older sister enjoy carefree lives thanks to their gated community in Bogotá. But threats of kidnappings, car bombs, and assassinations hover just outside the walls, where drug lord Pablo Escobar continues to elude authorities When their mother hires a live-in maid from the city's guerilla-occupied slum, Chula makes it her mission to understand Petrona, whose unusual behavior belies more than shyness."--Back cover.
