REVIEW for Lucky Girl by Amanda Maciel

Thank you to HarperCollins Children for sending me an electronic copy of this book to read and review.

TITLE:              Lucky Girl

AUTHOR:         Amanda Maciel

GENRE:            YA

RATING:           2 STARS

I adored this author's last book - Tease, in fact, re-read twice (something I rarely do).  So, I was so excited to read this one.

However, after literally pushing myself to finish (I kept counting the number of remaining pages - never a good sign) I feel as though the author committed the ultimate sin (in my eyes), she wrote an incredibly boring book.

Once again, Maciel does a good job of clearly defining her characters and I had a love/hate relationship with Rosie throughout.  As well, I love Maciel's writing, she can detail a scene extremely well, without putting too much or too little detail. 

But the story was simply soooooo slow.  At one point, when I got to the party/storm section of the book I thought "okay, this is where its going to get good" - but it didn't.  Then when I got to the "assessing the storm damage and the flipped car" I thought "now, it will get good"  - but it didn't.

It just never "got" good.  I am so disappointed.
