"Just Left of Lucky is one of those stories you wish wouldn't end ... I highly recommend this book be added to elementary and public libraries. It will be flying off the shelf!"--Red Canoe Reader, Kidlitexchange
Can you keep a secret? Twelve year old Shannon must, or risk losing the only family she has left--including her beloved dog, Boone.
But how do you keep your friends from finding out you're homeless? How do you keep the school resource officer from learning the truth? And what will happen when he does?
From the award winning author of A MILLION WAYS HOME and THE HIDDEN POWER OF DANDELIONS, comes this powerful and absorbing tale of poverty in America. For fans of Lynda Mulally Hunt, Dusti Bowling and Katherine Applegate.
"I think this book would be very eye-opening for middle grade readers, especially for those who haven't had to deal with loss. And for someone who is a sucker for happy endings, I loved that in the end things were looking up for Shannon and her family."--Jo-Ann Walsh, Kidlitexchange
