It's easy to see why The Higher Power of Lucky won the Newbery Medal, but not so easy to see why such a fuss was made when it came out over the author's use of the word scrotum. Seriously? Oh well. Lucky's story does touch on some heavy subjects (addiction and 12-step meetings, death, jail, poverty) that parents of ambitious younger readers might want to be aware of, but Patron tackles them with a tender, discerning eye, and the book's beautiful illustrations further soften their impact. I suspect this is one that resonates differently with children and adults too. Personally, I cried my eyes out (happy/bittersweet tears) over one scene towards the end, but a child might have a different reaction. Lucky, Lincoln, and Miles are wonderful characters, and Patron paints the adults of Hard Pan, California with a colorful brush too. Good stuff here all around! ( )

This book is about a girl named Lucky, whose mother died and her father didn't want her so he called his ex from France to take care of her. She overhears AA meetings talking about a higher power and that's exactly what she wants. She gets scared because the woman taking care of her has packing things out and she thinks she is going to leave her. This would be a good book for older students struggling with their place in the world.

This 2007 Newbery Medal winner has quirky characters - a 10-year-old motherless girl named Lucky, and her two friends, knot-tying Lincoln (whose mother is a part-time librarian in the nearest larger town, and whose dad is 23 years older), and Miles, who lives with his grandmother (since his mother is in jail) and wants to read/have read 1960's "Are You My Mother?" by P.D. Eastman over and over. Lucky lives in trailers with her young French guardian (her father's ex-wife) in a remote town, population 43 (apparently mostly members of 12-step programs) at the edge of a California desert. The controversy about the word "scrotum" on the first page of the book is overblown, but the story probably is not appropriate for children under 12 anyway. It's a heartfelt tale with an ending that brought tears to my eyes, but most 9- to 11-year-olds, the book's target audience, may not "get" it. ( )

Lucky, a 10 year-old little girl who is from a small town called Hard Pan in the California Desert, is expected to grow up and be the president. After a tragic accident kills her mother, Lucky’s father called his ex-wife up and asks her to take care of Lucky. Bridgette (the ex-wife) leaves a passport out and Lucky things that Bridgette is planning to leave her! When Lucky runs away because of her suspicion that Bridgette is leaving them, the town frantically starts looking for them; when the town finally finds Lucky, she finds out that what she thought was a passport was actually the paperwork for Bridgette to adopt her! This book teaches the incredible lessons of not judging a book by its cover and I would use it in my classroom to teach just that. ( )

It was a little disappointing that today nobody had explained how exactly they had found their Higher Power, which was what Lucky was mainly interested in finding out about.
