Book Review: Stolen Luck by Jaclyn Weist

Back Cover Blurb
genre: YA fantasy
Sixteen year old  Megan Crenshaw has everything going for her until the day a leprechaun shows up on her doorstep and steals all her luck. Not only that, he follows her around and wreaks havoc in her life. With the help of her friends, Megan must get her luck back before he manages to destroy her life and the lives of all those around her.

My Review
4 of 5 stars
Stolen Luck was equal parts entertaining and gripping. Can I start by saying how bad I felt for Megan? Poor, poor Megan. Reading about her awful luck was both hilarious and painful. I really felt for this girl! I loved how despite her crappy luck, she stayed positive and worked to fix her problem instead of playing the damsel in distress card. 

I really loved Beth as Megan's trusty sidekick. She was a great best friend--a little quirky, a little blunt, and still understanding. I also really loved Megan's four-year-old twin brother and sister. I could relate to so many of their antics! 

Louie was a great villain in this story. I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of him. 

This book is fun, and best of all it's clean. I would feel comfortable letting any tween read this book. I really enjoyed following Megan through her journey, and can't wait to read more in book two!
