Maguire is bad luck.

No matter how many charms she buys off the internet or good luck rituals she performs each morning, horrible things happen when Maguire is around. Like that time the rollercoaster jumped off its tracks. Or the time the house next door caught on fire. Or that time her brother, father, and uncle were all killed in a car crash—and Maguire walked away with barely a scratch.

It’s safest for Maguire to hide out in her room, where she can cause less damage and avoid meeting new people who she could hurt. But then she meets Jordy, an aspiring tennis star. Jordy is confident, talented, and lucky, and he’s convinced he can help Maguire break her unlucky streak. Maguire knows that the best thing she can do for Jordy is to stay away. But it turns out staying away is harder than she thought.

From author Paula Stokes comes a funny and poignant novel about accepting the past, embracing the future, and learning to make your own luck.

After a stressful week of tests (Grr at APUSH and AP Bio) and preparing for tests (Calc and AP Lang), seeing one of my favorite authors was a great way to end it. This was also one of my first author events and I went with people who could actually appreciate my love for books. :’)

To start off, let’s talk about how right after school on Friday we were picked up and got to the event almost 2 hours early. It was at a performing arts high school in Kissimmee, and their auditorium was hugeeeee! Talk about school goals!
