The Lightning Dreamer: Cuba's Greatest Abolitionist - Margarita Engle

Young Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, or Tula as her loved ones call her, has no interest in following the path that has been chosen for her. Margarita Engle, in powerful prose and intertwining points of view, details Tula’s upbringing in patriarchal Cuba during a time of slavery. Struggling to do what is right and refusing to be silenced, The Lightning Dreamer (Harcourt, $16.99) does whatever it takes to follow her heart, even if it means betraying her family’s wishes and facing prejudice in the process. Ages 13-17. KLG
