“Lizzie and the Good Luck Girl” by Susan Lubner will be released November 6th, 2018. This book is well written book about friendship, love, hope, and Cats.
Lizzie is a 12 year old girl who lives with her parents, two cats, and dog in an apartment over their diner. Lizzie’s Mom is having a baby, having a baby is hard for her parents leaving Lizzie worried for her Mom and the baby.
Lizzie and her best friend Joss love cats and are planning to raise money for the local shelter by knitting “cat sweaters”. They believe this is a very good idea since dogs like to wear sweaters, cats should too. Unfortunately they do later discover cats do not like sweaters! They do not let that get their charity fundraiser get them down, they decide to knit something else for the cats.
Lizzie and Joss love for cats leads them into the abandoned house next door where they have seen a stray cat. They figure the cat has kittens and they should rescue them. What they find is much bigger than a kitten, there is a 11 year old girl Charlotte hiding in a closet.
Charlotte ran away from home in hopes of preventing her parents divorce.
Lizzie believes Charlotte will be good luck and decides to hide her in her room so she can help her better.
This story is about a lot of things, but what I love is the hope that Lizzie and Charlotte give each other. I loved this book and look forward to reading more books by the author.
