Just Lucky

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Just Lucky

Lucky loves her grandparents. True, her grandma forgets things…like Lucky’s name, but her grandpa takes such good care of them that Lucky doesn’t realize how bad things are. When her grandma accidentally sets the kitchen on fire, Lucky can’t hide what’s happening any longer, and she is sent into foster care. She quickly learns that some foster families are okay. And some really, really aren’t. Is it possible to find a home again when the only one you’ve ever known has been taken from you? (Second Story Press)
