Language Arts, 7-2
12 December 2012 Rising Action: Lucky sees Brigitte's suitcase lying out. In the suitcase is her passport. This leads Lucky to believe Brigitte is tired of being her guardian, and that she will return to her home in France, so Lucky decides to run away from home. Lucky decides to take control of her own life by running away from home. She takes along HMS Beagle, and her survival kit. She is sure that her survival kit will protect her. A strong windstorm comes upon Lucky. This changes her plan to leave Hard Pan. What she expects and what really happens are not the same. However, Lucky realizes that good things may happen when you least expect them to. Conclusion: Rating: Lucky is a 10 year old girl who lives in a small town called Hard Pan. After her mother died, her father called upon his first wife ex-wife, Brigitte, to come and take care of her. Lucky fears that Brigitte will leave her, so she seeks help from her "Higher Power". Outside of town, Lucky finds Miles, who was lost and injured from the storm, so she takes him with her. Lincoln then joins them, and tells them that the rest of the town is looking for them. They take shelter in the dugouts near an abandoned mine and wait out the storm. Brigitte finds them and she takes Lucky home. She explains to Lucky that the papers Lucky found in the suitcase were actually papers to legally adopt her. She also tells her of her plans to open a restaurant in Hard Pan. I liked the character of Lucky because she was interesting, and well developed. She seemed like a person who was determined to take care of herself. I also liked the fact that Brigitte took care of Lucky as if she was her very own. Therefore, I rate the book a four out of five stars. Setting: This story takes place in a current time, in Hard Pan, California. Tone: Quote: Characters: Synopsis: The tone of this novel is
