well written and very interesting story. ( )

This wonderful story of friendship also offers the reader a glimpse into Mixteco and Romani cultures. I love that it includes a description of both cultures, plus a glossary of terms. I liked that the story connected generations as well as cultures, and it included a bit of magical realism as well.

Surprising, haunting, almost magical, this tween novel is unusual in that it spans generations. At the beginning of the story, eleven-year old Teo is suffering from the recent loss of his mother and sister Lucita on the Hill of Dust in Mexico, where hardly anything exciting ever happens. But when the gypsies roll in and he meets Esma, the self-proclaimed colorful and dashing Queen of Lightning, his life slowly begins to change. Even though they come from different cultures, have never met before, and their relationship seems quite impossible, Teo and Esma, according to the Mistress of Destiny’s predictions, will be loyal, life-long friends and save each other when no one else can. This is their destiny. It's a touching, heartfelt story of friendship and enduring love that is not to be missed.

THE LIGHTNING QUEEN by Laura Resau tells the captivating story of a friendship that bridges the Rom and the Mexico Indian cultures.

In this poignant story that weaves together historical and contemporary tales, an old man shares with his grandson the story of growing up in the remote mountains of Mexico and his encounters with a young gypsy girl. Inspired by true stories, this fascinating multi-cultural tale of friendship will draw readers into the world of mid-20th century Mexico.

Librarians will find that fans of both historical and contemporary fiction will enjoy the bridge between the past and the present as well as between the cultures. With a hint of romance and magic, this fast-paced novel is a good choice for readers seeking stories focusing on the topics of cultural diversity and friendship.

The book’s end notes along with the author’s website provide excellent background information and resources for teachers.

I am intrigued with Mexican culture, particularly within the region of Oaxaca, and I have read two other middle reader/YA novels by Laura Resau. In this novel, the author portrays a cultural conflict between the Gypsy and Romani peoples in the region of Oaxaca in a way that honors both groups while realistically displaying the strife they endure. The enduring friendship between Teo and Esma is touching but almost redundant at times, but I really enjoyed how the two come together across time. The juxtaposition of two time periods also adds nicely to the story. Themes of friendship and loyalty are key, but being true to one's self is also preeminent throughout. This book could be used to teach about conflict and resolution between cultures as well as the power of a promise. ( )

Nothing happens on the Hill of Dust in Oaxaca, Mexico. Until one day one when, Esma, the Queen of Lightning shows up. Esma’s grandmother, known as the Mistress of Destiny, gives Teo & Esma a fortune that they will be friends for life. With Teo’s three pets, a rescued duck, blind goat, & a three-legged skunk, Teo & Esma overcome many obstacles to make this fortune come true. This friendship will span over generations, especially with Teo’s American Grandson, Mateo & Esma’s Granddaughter, Ruby.
Teo - At the beginning of the book he is eleven, speaks perfect spanish and mixteco, the language of his people, loves curing sick people, rescuing animals in need, & life itself
Esma - Probably eleven at the beginning of the book, speaks perfect spanish and Romani, the language of her people, feisty, never gives up, & believes nothing is impossible
Mateo - Teo’s grandson, I guess he’s thirteen, speaks spanish & English,

This book is historical fiction. I liked this book because,
1. I like historical fiction novels
2. I really liked the characters personalities
I recommend this book because it makes you think about the ways people are treated because of what we’ve heard of them and what it would be like to step into their shoes.
