This has been driving me nuts for years. It's a book I read when I was a little girl (maybe late 90s?). All I can really remember about it was one of the two main characters was a gypsy and she could tell fortunes. I remember that she was better at it than her mother and she could do magic through meditation - breath in one nostril and out the other. I also remember the book started with the villain going to visit the girl and her mother to get his fortune told.

I think there was a second character who was a boy and there was an adventure to save their world or kingdom or something similar. I know it's not a lot of information, hense me never being able to find it on Google. >.< Any points in the right direction would be wonderful

Jordan, I notice a link for the The Book Thief in the header. Is this book somehow similar to the one you're looking for? (When a request is first created, just leave the book link above empty - we fill it when the book is found.)

Not sure what happened. Goodreads does some strange things sometimes. No worries, I removed the book link.

I added some plot details to the topic header. Feel free to update it (without spoilers) by clicking the small "edit" link on the desktop website (not the mobile app).

How old is the gypsy girl? How and where does she meet the boy? Is he from a fantasy world/kingdom?
