Format: Hardcover
I've read and reviewed, (and enjoyed), a lot of fantasy and adventure and action and school daze books, but sometimes you want a calm, mellow, well crafted book that's just about life and family and community and growing up. Here, we have an engaging and thoughtful narrator with a realistic feel, a good heart and an inquiring mind, and while the drama in her life may not be monumental in any large sense it is important to her and so it is important to us.

Lucky is concerned about stability and getting control of her life. She's sort of an orphan, lives in the middle of nowhere, and is worried that her beloved guardian might leave her to return home to France. Lucky is surrounded by other lost souls of both the kid and adult variety. She is scrappy and decent and alternates between being a bit dreamy and being overly practical. Her voice is fresh and innocent, but not simple.

In her way, and not in an unnerving way, she concentrates and gives voice to the kinds of insecurities that sometimes plague the youngsters for whom this book is intended. The graceful way Lucky assures her place seems likely to interest and comfort those readers.

So, this book is a nice, well crafted and thoughtful change of pace, and a gently upbeat meditation on the issues of home and place that matter most.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great realistic fiction that opens up conversation amongst children with adults about hard topics that children are faced with in life. Such as death of parents, learning to trust all over again, overhearing conversations at AA meetings. There is one word in this book that will need to be explained by an adult, however the book does explain this same word at the end of the book quite well. I would suggest 3rd Grade and up to be read with an adult in discussion however great messages!

Format: Hardcover
Hardpan, California, is an extremely small town with a population of approximately 43. It's the home of Lucky, an aspiring young scientist, and a ragtag bunch of townsfolk who are memorable and unique. Lucky is an orphan; her mother was electrocuted in a freak accident, and her father is out of the picture. Instead, he sent his first wife, Brigitte from France, to go and be Lucky's official Guardian. When Lucky fears that Brigitte is planning to go home to France, she takes matters into her own hands. A Newbery Medal Winner, The Higher Power of Lucky is a story of love, family and finding your place in the world. Lucky is a curious young girl who will tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh with her strange logic and thought patterns. Patron captures the essence of children in the kids who appear in the book. The Higher Power of Lucky will most likely resonate with any kid or person who questions whether or not people in their life love them and want them there. Definitely a good realistic fiction book.
