I loved this neat, tight little book. The characters are wonderful, sweet, and heartbreaking, the setting is unique, and it highlights one of my favorite kid books: Are You My Mother?

Lucky lives in Hard Pan, California, Pop. 43. She's ten, and she has a job cleaning up after the 12-step groups meet in the Found Objects Museum. She eavesdrops on the 12-step sessions and keeps hearing about how to tap into your higher power. She feels the need for a Higher Power, but she's not sure how to find it. Then she finds her guardian's passport and fears that she's going to be abandoned, so she runs away. I'm not going to give away any more. Ha ha.
