"Stevie Hart puts the cool in homeschool. Whip-smart dialogue, top-notch writing, and truly unique characters make for the perfect reading combination: quick pacing and heartaching. This book is alive in so many ways."--David Arnold, bestselling author of Mosquitoland
"A beautifully written story of loss and acceptance, of humor and tragedy, of finding yourself by losing yourself."--Marci Lyn Curtis, author of The One Thing
LUCKY FEW swings between a wholly immersive search for a hand to hold in the midst of fear and loss, and navigating the vulnerable joy of true friendship and first love - a totally unique, beautifully crafted story at once hilarious and heartbreaking, exhilarating as the waters of Barton Springs. This book absolutely sings, without forsaking the honesty of loneliness and self-doubt - and the bravery it takes to become who we truly are.--Jennifer Longo, author of Six Feet Over It and Up to this Pointe
*Ormsbee writes with an occasionally tongue-in-cheek tone that manages to be authentically emotional while delivering a realistic picture of a population that rarely gets much scrutiny in fiction for young adults: home-schoolers. The smart, efficient language features dialogue that pops. A sweet story told with intelligence, humor, and just the right amount of kissing.--Marci Lyn Curtis, author of The One Thing "Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW"
*Winsome characters, crackling dialogue, and an effortlessly enjoyable writing style help this one stand out in the crowded contemporary YA marketplace.--Marci Lyn Curtis, author of The One Thing "Booklist, STARRED REVIEW"
