I am Lucky Bird by Fleur Philips

Reviewed by Charlotte

Twelve year old Lucky Bird finds herself thrown into adulthood when her mother vanishes from a small town in Montana.  When she finally manages to escape an abusive grandmother and the grandmother’s lover, she finds herself into a whole nother world of trouble.  As she heads down a dangerous path, trying to outrun her past.  She meets an amazing family.  If she can meet her past head on there is hope that she can get a normal life finally.

Child abuse is an incredibly tough topic for any person to tackle.   Fleur Philips wrote about it beautifully.  I found myself caring for Lucky Bird and praying that she would finally find her happiness.  I found myself unable to put the book down having to know if she would finally free her demons and find her happy ever after.  I felt that quote really tells why Lucky’s life is as it is.  “Every event that happens in life, happens for a reason, every person you meet, every tragedy that unfolds, every small bit of good that’s bestowed upon you.  There’s a reason for it.”

The plot moves along quickly and the story pulls you right in.  I am Lucky Bird is a worthy read.  It is not light and easy, it will pull at your heart and makes you truly care for Lucky Bird.
