Goodreads:  After breaking a chain letter, can superstitious Megan find a way to turn her luck around?

Meghan McGlinchey is the most superstitious girl in her family ;and probably in the entire state of Delaware. When she receives a chain letter from a stranger in Ireland, Meghan immediately passes it on, taking only a tiny shortcut in the directions.

But after a disastrous day, made complete by losing the election for class president and embarrassing herself in front of the entire school, Meghan realizes that tiny shortcut was a big mistake. Thankfully, her family was already headed to Ireland on spring break, and Meghan makes it her mission to find the original sender and break her extremely unlucky streak.

With the help of an eccentric cast of characters ;and one very cute Irish boy ;can Meghan figure out a way to stop her bad luck? Or is she cursed forever.

Ope’s Opinion:  This was a cute, middle grade read.  The book read fast.  I read Cindy Callaghan’s Lost in London and really liked it.  So I had high expectations for Lucky Me.  This one did not keep my attention as well as Lost in London.  I found I was getting frustrated with all the “bad luck” Meghan was having.  After a while it was just too much.

I am going to keep this one for my granddaughter.  I hope she will enjoy it when she is old enough to read it.

Rating:  Three Chairs – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
