Marvelous Middle Grade Monday
Just 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.
