Here's what I read last week:
Teo's people are outsiders. They live in Mexico on the Hill of Dust, their language and customs scorned by others. Esma, Queen of Lightning, is part of the Romani people, traveling gypsies distrusted and hated by all they meet. When Esma's grandmother gives a prediction that the two will be life long friends it changes their lives, the lives of their people, and even their grandchildren's lives forever.
What do a smuggler's hotel, a lost map, and two twelve-year-olds have in common? They are all part of a winter mystery. This story is a fun read and I'd love to visit this hotel after spending the night at the hotel in the Whippet Hotel from Floors by Patrick Carmen.
