When Andersen Press offered this to me, I was really excited to read it. I've read tons of positive reviews about this book - in fact, I haven't seen a negative one!
I like the simple concept of how the book is basically about Lolly's luck changing practically over night. Even though some of the things that she goes through are seemingly 'unlucky' I believe that most of the time you make your own luck, and everything happens for a reason.
When Lolly heard the 'secret that would change her life for ever' (not saying what the secret is, you'll have to read the book yourself) I felt so, so, so sorry for her. To be honest, it was a bit like something dramatic that would happen in Eastenders! Lolly went through a lot and Mariella, the school bully, didn't help either.
There are twists and turns, ups and downs in this book! It's like a roller coaster ride. I really enjoyed it!
Is it just me, though, or does the cover look very similar to one of the newly-designed Cathy Cassidy books? Still love it though!
I think this book is for girls aged 8+ but I'm 13 and I really enjoyed it too. :) 5/5! This would make a perfect Christmas present.
