When a shy girl and her dragon-like companion discover their country's idyllic weather comes at a steep--and secret--cost, they recruit fellow students to defy authority and attempt to spread the truth. Storm beasts and their guardians create perfect weather every day, and Mina longs for a storm beast of her own. But when the gentle girl bonds with a lightning beast--a creature of fire and chaos--everyone's certain it's a mistake. Everyone but Mina and the beast himself, Pixit. Quickly enrolled in lightning school, Mina struggles to master a guardian's skills, and she discovers that her country's weather comes at a devastating cost--a cost powerful people wish to hide. Mina's never been the type to speak out, but someone has to tell the truth, and, with Pixit's help, she resolves to find a way to be heard.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Sarah Beth DurstPublisher: Clarion BooksPublished: 05/14/2019ISBN: 9781328973429Pages: 320Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 8.30h x 5.60w x 1.30dReview Citations: Booklist 04/15/2019 pg. 78Kirkus Reviews 03/01/2019School Library Journal 04/01/2019 pg. 71Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 05/01/2019Horn Book Magazine 05/01/2019 pg. 139Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2019 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 503772 / SparkReading Level: 4.9 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 10
