Three Times Lucky Review
Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage (May 10, 2012)
Genre: Middle Grade ARC
Source: Shelf Awareness win
A hilarious Southern debut with the kind of characters you meet once in a lifetime
Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone's business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she's been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her "upstream mother," she's found a home with the Colonel--a café owner with a forgotten past of his own--and Miss Lana, the fabulous café hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known.
Full of wisdom, humor, and grit, this timeless yarn will melt the heart of even the sternest Yankee.
This was a fun read and I highly recommend it for your girls or boys. You will fall in love with Mo.
This book has a lot of adventure and mystery and laughs. If you have a child that likes mysteries or adventure stories then they’ll enjoy this book. This book is funny and is a good representation of small town life. Even though Mo, doesn’t know where she was born or who her “upstream” mother is, she has a family that loves her and she discovers it in this book.
I hope this author continues Mo’s story because she’s that lovable and you want to know what else happens to her.
