Lucky Break was a fine read. I was surprised by how long it took for the storyline to get to the part where she breaks her leg, but it wasn't a boring read. I liked reading a book about rugby and the lists in the story were fun.

All in all, I enjoyed Lucky Break.

If she keeps it up, she could land a scholarship which would allow her to afford university, something her single mother and Lucy would find hard to afford otherwise. Lucy is driven, focused, dedicated and determined to work hard and realize her ambitions, even when a cute redheaded boy from New Zealand (Andy) could distract her. Even w ...more
