I convinced myself I wouldn't like this book, I kept telling myself I was only reading it as a light fluff-read since I couldn't concentrate with this headache I've had all day. Oh Dread I've been awful grumpy, but about halfway into this book I started to get more and more into it (not saying its slow at the beginning, I was just brat-tastic and stubborn when I started reading it). The book is part one of a trilogy, each novel is in the eyes of one of three sisters during a major turning point in their young lives. Phoebe is the youngest and the voice of Lucky, she is about to graduate middle school (8th grade) and is facing a whole lot of changes with friends, family, relationships, and her own maturity. Lucky grew into a touching story of friendship, I loved that. I wasn't expecting the end really and I did find myself wanting more, however, I want more from Phoebe's perspective so I haven't decided yet if I will be reading the other two books, Brilliant and Gorgeous. This is the first book I've read by Rachel Vail and it was written in a fun, charismatic fashion, with just enough quirkiness...I'll definitely have to check out other things she has written besides this trilogy (nowhere on the first book does it say trilogy, now that I look closer, but as far as I know there are only 3 books).

I definitely recommend Lucky to anyone looking for a light, quick, YA read. I usually shy away from middle-grade based novels but this one stretches just enough so that "middle school" is not the main focus. I will admit I unjustly hated on this book. After all, "you can't own your victories if you won't admit your failures, you know?"
