Reviews
Praise for THE BEST BAD LUCK I EVER HAD:

★ "[An] energetic, seamlessly narrated first novel... Levine handles the setting with grace and nuance."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "This classic story of how unlikely persons can change things for the better should appeal to all readers."--VOYA, starred review

"A fine debut novel by an author to watch."--Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will find humor in his candid account, universality in his dilemmas and blunders, and inspiration in his friendship with Emma and their mutual desire for social justice."--School Library Journal

"Levine's story treats racism frankly and with no mincing of words. The highlight of this coming-of-age journey comes from watching the two kids learn about the world and come to care about each other in the way of 13-year-olds."--Booklist
