Combining history, magic and folklore, this colorful tale offers a glimpse into an encounter between two fascinating but marginalized cultures--the Rom and the Mixtec Indians--while telling the heart-warming story of an unlikely friendship that spans generations. Teo’s grandfather is a master storyteller and tells tales of a mysterious Romani girl called the Lightning Queen. Teo gets even more involved in the story when his grandfather asks him for help tracking down this magical woman from his past. This is a story of love, loss and family that appeals to children, teens and adults alike. (Vermont DCF Book Award 2017)
