Spanish Bingo Game: Lotería
This game was inspired by a traditional Mexican game
Loteria Novel Unit
The journal/memoir of 11-year-old Luz Castillo, who has been taken into the state’s custody after her father is arrested. Luz’s mother has disappeared, and older sister Estrella lies dying in a hospital. Luz, whom some might label a willful child, steadfastly refuses to speak to anyone, least of all her counselor; instead, the child has opted to share her thoughts with God via written entries inspired by the pictures in a deck of Lotería cards. Zambrano’s selection of the Mexican bingo-like game cards as Luz’s communication vehicle is sheer genius. Not only is it the girl’s favorite game because it calls up happier times, but also because the images, including a tree, a rooster, and death, spur her imagination, unearthing events that otherwise might become forever suppressed. A nonjudgmental observer of her dysfunctional environment, Luz is trying to construct her own moral compass. Although this spare, little illustrated book may seem better suited to young adult readers, rest assured that Luz’s story will engage both young and old right up to, and beyond, the startling plot twist.
