Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Things are fairly normal in Hard Pan, population forty-three. But to Lucky, fairly normal means fairly boring, and sheand#8217;s restless. Just in the nick of time, she meets a potential new best friend named Paloma, who happens to be visiting Hard Pan with her uncle, a geologist. And before she knows it, Lucky gets stuck in a well, meets up with a wild burro, discards something she didnand#8217;t know was precious, does something unexpectedly cruel, and learns a couple of the secrets of the universe.

Synopsis:

Includes an excerpt from "Lucky for good."

Synopsis:

Lucky Breaks: Susan Patron’s charming sequel to the Newbery Award-winning The Higher Power of Lucky.
