Publisher's Summary

Prepare to be enthralled by this lyrical, achingly human debut novel about a young girl's remarkable resilience in the face of loss. Struggling to cope as her family falls apart, 11-year-old Luz María Castillo retreats into her beloved set of Lotería cards - a Mexican game featuring riddles and vibrant images. Each card represents a different memory, and as Luz shuffles through the deck, she weaves her recollections into a compelling story of love, loyalty, tragedy, and hope.
By turns affecting and inspiring, Lotería is a powerful novel that heralds the arrival of an outstanding new writer, one who reminds us of the importance of remembering, even when we are trying to forget.

There are also plenty of sentences spoken in Spanish, that are not translated, which makes you feel like you're missing out on a lot of character interaction, again in a physical book it would be easier to translate words you don't know. So, the enjoyment of the story is flawed a lot by it's unsuitability to the audio media - unless you speak Spanish,
