Lucky for Good

Lucky Series, Book 3
Borrow Borrow
"Susan Patron writes honest and true, and this, her final Lucky, feel truest of all. I loved it!"-Kathi Appelt, author of the Newbery Honor Book The Underneath

For eleven-year-old Lucky, the universe is full of questions. Is that mysterious woman at the Café Miles's mom? Does Lucky's father not talk to her because he hates her? Will the health department ruin everything? Is she really going to go to hell? The answers are, in no particular order: nearly, no, yes, and a big fat "who knows?"
But answers are constantly evolving, and sometimes the biggest questions have no answers at all. The best Lucky can do is never give up on maybe understanding things a little better before she turns twelve. It will take a punch in the face (not her face), a near-Café disaster, a trip to the principal's office, and both male and female sofas—but in the end, she'll see that there are loopholes in life and, thankfully, in county health codes!
The Hard Pan trilogy that began with the Newbery Medal–winning The Higher Power of Lucky concludes with Lucky and all of Hard Pan a little wiser and a lot closer to all our hearts.
From the Compact Disc edition.

  • AudioFile Magazine In this final installment of Patron's Hard Pan trilogy, 11-year-old Lucky's adoptive mother's café is under investigation, her friend's mother is released from jail, and Lucky learns more than she anticipated when she creates a family tree. Lucky's life in her tiny town in the Mojave Desert is full of dissecting owl pellets, reading about her hero, Charles Darwin, and discussing big questions about God and science and family with her quirky neighbors. Cassandra Campbell's performance brings intimacy and warmth to the story. She doesn't differentiate much between characters' voices, but her French accent for Lucky's adoptive mother, Brigitte, shines. Campbell's subdued tone matches Lucky's as she contemplates the meaning of the family she was born with and the family she creates. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
