Just My Luck


Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Justmyluck.jpgJust My Luck (Harper, 2016) by Cammie McGovern is a touching story.

Fourth grader Benny Barrows has so much to worry about--not being able to ride his bike, Dad's accident might be his fault, finding a new friend, the new contest at school... He doesn't think anyone else has more problems than they do which makes it hard to follow his mom's advice of thinking about someone else's problem and trying to help them.

The author created a sympathetic and believable character in Benny. Cammie McGovern also writes YA and adult books. Read more here.


Thanks. I'm always looking for realistic boys books and this seems like a good fit.

Maybe I need a category for books of special interest to boys. ;-)
