Loteria, by Mario Alberto Zambrano.

ZambranoAn illustrated novel vs. a graphic one…  11 year-old Luz has gone mute after witnessing something (we don’t know what it is ’til near the end) and uses a Mexican deck of Loteria cards (look like tarot but play more like Bingo) to slowly– card-by-card– reveal her tale in writing.
