Product Details


“A must-read for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why and This Is How It Ends.”—Paste Magazine

Wildly ambitious and wholly empathetic, devastatingly raw, and impossibly gentle; a must-read in this moment.” —Kirkus, starred review

“This heartbreaking and touching story of grief and loss, as well as hope and forgiveness, will resonate with readers who deal with this fear and reality on a daily basis.” – SLJ

“[An] intense, affecting debut”– Publishers Weekly

Tragically relevant and with a nuanced perspective on grief and being a survivor….The Lucky Ones portrays grief as multifacted and complicated.”—Booklist

“A gripping, emotional, suspenseful, and ultimately hopeful story about loss, survivor’s guilt, and learning to find love and trust again. Put The Lucky Ones on your TBR list—you do NOT want to miss it!” —Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying

“A harrowing and beautifully told story about how far the tentacles of tragedy can reach. May’s story of grief, survival, and reckoning is tenderly and honestly explored. A simply stunning debut.” —Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

“Liz Lawson writes as a listener first, allowing her characters to fill the pages of The Lucky Ones with their vibrant, unique voices as they take up the space they (and Lawson) demand for themselves, for their humanity, for their lives.” —Will Walton, author of I Felt a Funeral, in My Brain

“Exploding with raw anger, and underneath it all, a deep, driving ache, this debut is a reminder to hug those we love, and not take a single second we have with them for granted. Highly, highly recommend.”Kelly Coon, author of Gravemaidens

Goodness. This story made me ugly cry next to strangers on an airplane. The Lucky Ones is so beautiful and important. As a teacher, mother, author, and human being, I say thank you to Liz Lawson for tackling a horrible reality in such a heartfelt and lovely way.”Erin Hahn, author of You’d Be Mine and More Than Maybe

“The Lucky Ones
takes a subject that has become tragically familiar and manages to tell the untold story. Liz Lawson deftly explores grief and trauma, but she always threads it through with hope and love. This is a beautiful and necessary book.”Lauren Morrill, author of Better Than the Best Plan
