Lucky For Good (Hard Pan Trilogy)

Lucky For Good    (Hard Pan Trilogy)

Susan Patron has a gift for capturing the deepest places in the hearts and worry places of children and she has written another miracle with Lucky for Good. If you haven't met Lucky in the earlier two books then you need to know she is living with the woman who was her father's first wife, but not actually her mother. Together they live in a small town in the American desert and run the Hard Pan Cafe cooking great French food and offering haute cuisine in the middle of nowhere. Lucky is one of those sensitive souls who tentatively watches life for what might lie around the corner that is not so lucky. Her life has blossomed since we first met her and she is growing up knowing she is loved. But, problems keep finding her. One of her bigger problems is the health inspector who may be on the verge of closing down The Hard Pan because of its illegal location. The entire town will have to come together to solve this one. Then, there is the situation with her good friend, Miles, and his mother, Justine. Read this book to page twenty at least to share in the indescribable moment when Justine is released from prison and finds Miles. Get your hanky now. Lucky is also trying to unravel her father who does not seem interested in knowing her or communicating with her. These are problems in layers reaching into the most important places in ourselves. Sharing in Lucky's journey is a privilege and will most surely touch hearts in an unforgettable way. How wonderful that we have these three books to offer us a chance to explore and feel and find what is true and what is wonderful. 208 pages Ages 8-12 ISBN 978-1-4169-9058-1
