Lucky Enough by Fred Bowen: Book Review

Book received at no charge to facilitate review.

Trey's lucky token, a piece of blue sea glass he found with his grandmother, has brought a string of good luck. His performance on the baseball field exceeds his expectations and he scores well on tests at school with very little effort. When he makes the Ravens team, he carries the piece of glass with him during every play, hoping it will continue helping him with his lucky streak.

His luck turns when Trey loses his precious shard of glass. When his mom and uncle reminisce at dinner about their mother's work ethic, Trey comes to the conclusion that he has put too much emphasis on his grandmother's "lucky enough" sign. Could it be that his grandmother felt stronger about hard work leading to success rather than luck and that his good luck charm really doesn't matter?

Detailed descriptions of all things baseball, including practice and games by Bowen will have the young sports enthusiast fully engrossed in the game. Even better, the subtle life lesson of the value of work will make an impression on the back of the mind. Fun facts about about the rituals of famous baseball players make a good bonus read.

Rating ★★★★☆
