Did I enjoy this book: I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read that took about a day. I didn’t want to put it down.
Yes, it’s a middle grade/youth book, but it was really cute. I loved it. Lucky Me has adventure, superstitions, family, a crush. Meghan is a character that you will relate to no matter how old you are! I felt bad for her string of bad luck, but there was some good luck mixed in as well.
Would I recommend it: Absolutely! I can’t wait for my daughter to be old enough to read it.
About the book – from Goodreads: After breaking a chain letter, can superstitious Megan find a way to turn her luck around?
Meghan McGlinchey is the most superstitious girl in her family—and probably in the entire state of Delaware. When she receives a chain letter from a stranger in Ireland, Meghan immediately passes it on, taking only a tiny shortcut in the directions.
But after a disastrous day, made complete by losing the election for class president and embarrassing herself in front of the entire school, Meghan realizes that tiny shortcut was a big mistake. Thankfully, her family was already headed to Ireland on spring break, and Meghan makes it her mission to find the original sender and break her extremely unlucky streak.
With the help of an eccentric cast of characters—and one very cute Irish boy—can Meghan figure out a way to stop her bad luck? Or is she cursed forever?
