Lucía the Luchadora and the Million Masks
Written by Cynthia Leonor Garza
Illustrated by Alyssa Bermudez
Lucía the Luchadora returns in a new adventure!
Lucía’s little sister Gemma wants to be a luchadora like her, but she is more bumble and splat than pizzazz, and seems to find trouble wherever she goes. When Gemma makes a ginormous hole in her big sister’s special silver mask, Lucía is exasperated at how she seems to get away with everything. But a trip to the mercado with Abuela presents the sparring sisters with a dazzling array of possibilities: MORE masks and identities to explore! When Lucía realizes she’s misplaced her special silver mask, a frantic search ensues with Gemma’s help, and Lucía discovers that some things, including troublemaking little sisters, are one of a kind.
A splendiferous follow-up to 2017’s smash hit Lucía the Luchadora, which was named one of the Best Books of the year by NPR, Kirkus Reviews, Chicago Public Library, and more.
Cynthia Leonor Garza has enjoyed many shared adventures at the mercado since she was a kid. She’s a journalist who has worked for several newspapers and her commentaries have appeared on NPR and in The Atlantic.
