The teenage years of Lucky Santangelo are the years that formed her into the powerful woman she has become. This is the story of those years. The tales of a fifteen year old who is trying to find her own way and get out from under her father, Gino, control. It is the story of a determined girls journeys through private elite schools, a villa in South France, and her dreams of being in Las Vegas.
Lucky Santangelo is one of my all time favorite characters in any book, especially in Jackie Collin books. I enjoyed learning of her past. Many of the stories were repeated from other Lucky books but in this book it went into more detail. Since this was the story of a fifteen year old, I expected a lot of drama. I was not disappointed. Lucky’s life is full of drama, although not all of it was brought on by her. I believe that anywhere and anyone Lucky and Gino go or come in contact would contain drama.
This was not my favorite Jackie Collins book, but it was a good read. I always like to know the history of a character, which is all this book was…history. It also offered much insight into why Lucky is who is she and how she got there. I believe now that I have read this one I am going to go back and read the past books, in order, and enjoy Lucky’s whole life.
