Stevie Hart has never fit in, but she’s okay with that. She enjoys homeschool and her political work with the Springs for Tomorrow Alliance. And even if it isn’t typical teenage stuff, Stevie and her best friend Sanger know how to have fun. But when Max Garza moves in next door, Stevie’s comfortable life starts to unravel. Max convinces Stevie and Sanger to help him with his list: 23 Ways to Fake My Death Without Dying. Unfortunately, as Stevie grows closer to Max, it is harder for her to handle his brushes with death.
Lucky Few is a book that swings between humorous and profound. It looks at some atypical teens with some typical teenage concerns. Readers will relate to the characters on many levels while still having their world expanded. It is a good read for any teens that may have trouble fitting in and just want to be appreciated for who they are.
