Overview

Lucky (Avery Sisters Trilogy Series #1) by Rachel Vail

It's all good . . . and lucky Phoebe Avery plans to celebrate by throwing an end-of-the-year bash with her four closest friends. Everything will be perfect—from the guest list to the fashion photographer to the engraved invitations. The only thing left to do is find the perfect dress . . . until Phoebe goes from having it all to hiding all she's lost.

Phoebe's older sisters warn her to keep the family's crisis totally secret. Unfortunately, her alpha-girl best friend looks increasingly suspicious, and Phoebe's crush starts sending seriously mixed signals. Phoebe tries hard to keep smiling, but when her mother is humiliated in Neiman Marcus while buying Phoebe that perfect dress and her father decides to cancel her party, she panics. How far will she go to keep up her image as a lucky girl?

With lucky, Rachel Vail begins a powerful sisterhood trilogy, comprised of one book for each of the three fascinating Avery sisters, with all their secrets laid bare during the year that completely changes their lives. Phoebe is the youngest; her story combines first love and flip-flops, friendship and sisterhood, humor and tears. Breezy, witty, and poignant, lucky is Rachel Vail at her breathtaking best.

I truely am a picky reader. I will stop in the middle of some books and pick them up a year later. I will also sometimes never pick them up again. I need to be interested in a book and need to be wondering what is going to happen next. This book had those qualitys! I started reading this book and couldn't stop! It is about an 8th grader, Phoebe who is in the popular group. She is rich and is really lucky. Her friends and her plan a huge graduation party. Until her parents have a fianancial issue. Will she have to cancel it? Will her friends still hang out with her? She also finds out that she loves Luke. Does she forgive her and like her back? You'll have to read the book to find out!

I bought this book on one of those mad-shopping-sprees. It was about a girl going from 800-dollar Vera Wang's to not planning parties with her friends. Very cute. Teaches a lesson about appreciating money and everything you have.

Lucky is a realistic fiction book by Rachel Vail. It was a very good book and it kept me wondering what was going to happen. It had friendship, romance, and school which when put together made an excellent book. This book is set in the modern day, in a small town, at a girl named Phoebe's house and school. Phoebe's mom finds out that she was fired from her job and lost millions of dollars. Phoebe's dad tells her they don't have enough money to get a 500 dollar dress for Phoebe and spend thousands of dollars on the 8th grade moving up party she and her friends were planning. Phoebe doesn't want her best friend Kirsten to pay her share or to cancel the party. Phoebe doesn't want to tell Kirsten she doesn't have the money. She's afraid Kirsten will kick her out of the group. Phoebe thinks that she should take some money out of her bank account and then everything would be fine. She gets in a fight with Kirsten to cancel the party and avoid Kirsten and her other friends from knowing she can't pay for the party. Phoebe starts spending more time with her ex-boyfriend, Luke to pass the time and try to get away from it all. Rachel Vail has a very good language use. She uses some larger words, but at the same time she has Phoebe and her friends talking like real 8th graders. She used the word "like" where it shouldn't be used, but where an 8th grader would use it in that way. Other author's do this too, but it wasn't like Rachel's. I could hear Phoebe's tone as I was reading it. I would definitely recommend this book for girls, mainly teens. Teens who like books about friendship, romance, and cliques would enjoy this book.

Phoebe, the youngest of the Avery sisters, is graduating from middle school. Her life seems perfect. She and her four best friends will be having the party of the year, she has an eye on the perfect dress, and the promise of high school's new beginnings. But when Phoebe's mom starts acting weird, and her friends start alienating her, the perfect conclusion to her eighth-grade year is at stake.

Can Phoebe pull it together and do what's right, even if it means swallowing her pride and forgoing what she wants most?

LUCKY is the wholly enjoyable first novel in Rachel Vail's new trilogy. Phoebe is a nicely relatable narrator who nearly anyone can empathize with. Her problems are those that we've all faced at one time or another, reminding us once again that you don't have to have to be privileged to be able to solve them with your dignity intact.

Witty and engaging, by the time this coming-of-age story is spun, you'll feel truly lucky to read it.
