The Cuckoo Colloquium
Michael Greco, author
The princess. The liar. The thief. The bully. The wuss. Five troubled teens from all over the globe, plus their inexperienced driver and elderly chaperone, have unexpectedly been stranded in the exotic-bizarre rainforest world of Borneo. It was supposed to be a year-end leadership seminar. It was supposed to help them grow, their minds expanded by the stunning landscape and the exotic wildlife. In reality? Not even close. Lost and separated in an uncaring rain forest with flying snakes, abusive primates, and marauding jungle life, it's an unremarkable little bird—a cuckoo shrike—that seems to be calling all the shots. Each member of the Cuckoo Colloquium is forced to face their own unique challenges, both savage and fantastic, or die trying. Because as it turns out, the jungle has no intention of letting them go. The Cuckoo Colloquium is a thrilling story of hope, survival, and pushing past the limits our world draws around us.
