Fifteen-year-old Nathalie Gauthier had reservations about her father’s new job in Africa, but little did she know that missing her home and her friends would be the least of her worries. She finds herself in the middle of an illegal bird-trading scheme, and it’s a race against time for her father to save her and the treasured African Greys.
