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.

"When Mina’s beast hatches as a lightning beast, everyone’s shocked: Mina’s so quiet she often goes unheard, and lightning guardians should be 'brash and loud and brave.' But Mina is brave, though sometimes self-doubting, and she finds creative ways to be heard. Probing the undiscussed connection between Alorria’s intentional weather and the weather across the mountains where 'outsiders' live spurs this thoughtful heroine into forbidden actions to address her realization that 'The truth ha[s] faces. And graves'.... Warm, exciting, hopeful, and ethical." — Kirkus Reviews
