About 10 Lucky Things That Have Happened to Me Since I Nearly Got Hit by Lightning
Kids who love humor will love Effie Maloney.
Effie Maloney’s life is perfect now that she has two best friends, Nit and Aurora. Effie’s feeling lucky—until the Valentine’s Day fiasco at their school, St. Dom’s. Next, superathlete Aurora starts talking about leaving for public school, where the sports programs are better. Effie’s got to come up with a scheme to make Aurora want to stay at St. Dom’s.
Meanwhile, her mother’s old college friend Frank, a priest, comes to stay at the Maloneys’ under mysterious circumstances. And Effie’s long-dreamed-of St. Patrick’s Day slumber party gets out of control. Somehow, Effie’s life doesn’t seem so perfect anymore. . . .
Luck, friends, and family save the day in Mary Hershey’s entertaining and touching companion to the delightful My Big Sister Is So Bossy She Says You Can’t Read This Book.
