Quebrado is a young man of Taino Indian and Spanish ancestry. He is a slave to Bernardino de Talavera, a Caribbean pirate, who wishes to conquer the Caribbean isles and searches for vulnerable islanders to capture and sell. When a hurricane hits the ship, Quebrado escapes the dangerous waters and finds refuge in a small village. Quebrado befriends two young lovers, learns how to navigate his past and present, and decides the fate of his former captors.

This is a very short book. This story is fictional but based on historical references of the Caribbean history but told in series of short poems.
