    this book was amazing, also I agree with RP ges because this book was inspiring. Esma really believed that anything was posable.

    I enjoyed reading this book very much! I liked how Esma believed that “nothing is impossible!” I completely agree with RP ges that it was inspiring because Esma wanted to follow her dreams and never gave up. I also liked how Mateo’s grandfather told about the Lightning Queen in a story and didn’t say that he needed Mateo to find her until almost the very end of the book.
