    1. ARC from Young Adult Books Central and reviewed there. Fortune Falls is a great place to live if you're a Lucky, but Sadie Bleeker is probably not. She hasn't turned 12 yet, so she is still Undetermined, but since she has so many bad things happening to her, she doesn't hold out a lot of hope for the Luck Test. Her best friend, Cooper, will probably be Lucky, and they would then go to different schools. Sadie wants to marshal all of her resources and wishes to use to pass the test, but when her [...]


    2. I was immediately engrossed in the story and the characters here. It was absolutely terrifying to think of all the different superstitions these townsfolk had to keep up with in order just to survive. Sadie is one brave girl and I loved watching her wrestle with big questions. Luck in this town is almost synonymous for money and there's a lot to learn here about compassion and responsibility of those less fortunate - in this case literally - in these pages without it being terribly overt. There' [...]


    3. Great concept, but I'm not a huge fan of the execution. That being said, I think my kids will really like it.


    4. Summary: Sadie’s town of Fortune Falls is as superstitious as can be. Step on a crack, break your mother’s back. Rabbit’s feet and horseshoes are expensive. And students at age 13 are tested for their luck. The Luckies get to go to Flourish Academy, while the Unluckies are sent to Bane’s School for Luckless Adolescents.Sadie is approaching age 13, and her life so far has been a big unlucky streak. Lots of accidents, a parent death, not to mention a Friday the 13th birthday. What will hap [...]


    5. Sadie is an Unlucky. That means she is unlucky all her life. In her world, lucky charms are actually lucky. There are two different kinds of human, a Lucky and a Unlucky. Luckies are the ones that are very lucky and get to have everything they want. A Unlucky wears ripped clothes, and is always Unlucky. Sadie knows she is an Unlucky but in reality she is an Undetermined. That means she will have to pass a test. Can she become extremely lucky and passed the test as Lucky to go to the best school, [...]


    6. This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.Wow. This book is so, so good.I mean, I thought it would just be a fluffy kid's book. That's what it looks like from the cover and the page count, isn't it? And yet this is one of the coolest premises I've read about in a long time, and it's more well-written and engaging than many books that are supposed to be written for older kids.Everybody's always talking about retelling fairytales, but how come no one ever came up with the idea of pl [...]


    7. I loved this book. I keep coming back to the characters and the town and thinking, "Wow, I am so grateful to have found this book," because it really gave me a different perspective on lucky and unlucky. But is anybody really unlucky if you have friends? I would so recommend this book to lovers of Natalie Lloyd's A Snicker of Magic, and also to fantasy and magic gurus. Here is a summary:11 year old Sadie Bleeker lives with her mom and little brother, Petey, in a town called Fortune Falls. There, [...]


    8. Sadie, the main character of "Fortune Falls" has a strange test to take. Well, not that strange in this town. Everyone has to take a test to determine whether they are lucky or not. If they fail, they have to go to the school for the luckless! I couldn't wait to find out whether Sadie would pass the test or not! For a while, it seemed like black cats were trying to make her cross their path!--Scott



    9. "Even in Fortune Falls, luck has very little to do with the charm and everything to do with perception." In the town of Fortune Falls, luck is everything. Never has "step on a crack, break your mother's back" had more importance than in this town. It's not just a saying it's a way of life. You see, there are Luckies, Unluckies and Undetermineds. Those who pass the luck test get to go to Flourish Academy for the rest of their academic career. Those who fail go to Bane's School for Luckless Adole [...]


    10. Book 12 In the book "Fortune Falls" everyone has rules to follow. The have to follow rules like don't step on a crack or you'll break your mothers back, and hold your breath when you pass a graveyard. The story follows a young 11 year old girl named Sadie. Sadie is turning twelve. When you turn twelve you have to take a luck test. This test decides if you are lucky or unlucky. Those who are lucky go to flourish academy, and those who are unlucky go to banes a school for luckless adolesents. With [...]


    11. Book 2So, Sadie lives in Fortune Falls, a place where you need to mind the rules like, “Don’t step on a crack, or you’ll break your mother’s back.” And “ Hold your breath when you pass a graveyard.” Along with many more. Sadie has a problem, she has to pass the Luck Test, if she doesn’t she will be considered and unlucky and be sent away to a different island. Her best friend, Cooper has been told by his parents to not hang out with her anymore because her bad luck could spread t [...]


    12. ***SPOILER ALERT!!*** Summary:Sadie Bleeker is as unlucky as they come. If there's a ladder, she's walked under it. If there's a black cat, it has crossed her path. This isn't just by any coincidence however. Sadie is considered and "unlucky". In her town of Fortune Falls you are labeled 'lucky' or 'unlucky' by your 12th birthday and if you're an 'unlucky' you're sent away for yours, and everyone else's, safety. Though Sadie is technically undetermined until she turns 12, everyone in town knows [...]


    13. I chose to purchase this book for my 9-year-old daughter from the Book Fair because it was on clearance and when I read the summary it sounded cute. Well, I'm glad I did. She loved it so much that she has now claimed it as her favorite book of all time. She also begged me to read it as well, so I did (in between reading other books). The book has just the right amount of mystery and intrigue for her age group and is not scary at all. It also has a few life lessons and points of encouragement wh [...]


    14. Samantha and I read this book together, approximately one chapter every night over the course of a little less than two weeks, and it was such a delightful story in which to immerse ourselves. Its target audience is for second and third grade students, so while I read aloud to her, we were also able to practice some of her sight words throughout the process. The story held her attention beautifully — a feat in itself with my little one — and was highly enjoyable for mommy, too.


    15. This book is a great book. One of the things that makes you think is when Zeta says that you can expand your luck from a lucky penny. Since you need to find a lucky penny and you're a unlucky person wouldn't you never find it. But if you found the penny wouldn't that prove that your lucky and you're basically becoming luckier. In the book it seems like Sadie is super unlucky but gets lucky sometimes.


    16. It was an AMAZING book, one of my favorites. It's like all the little superstitions and games like step on the crack and you will break you mom's back and a rabbit's foot is lucky. One of my favorite things about the book was it was the most action packed books but I it also was able to get into your emotions. Also how looks can be deceiving.


    17. This book kinda messed with me irl.It's cute, has a positive message with a clever resilient female character. My daughter loves it and had me read it as well. A few strange and coincidental things happened to me while reading it. I'm not saying this book is magic but it probably wouldn't hurt to have a rabbit's foot in your pocket while you read.


    18. I kept on expecting more in the story. The heart if the story was interesting (have and have-nots.) I wanted to see more in the story line that "Luck" was questioned (chicken and egg). (Note that I was between a 3 & 4.) I guess I was looking for a bit more introspection from Sadie (Lucky Lady) and a bit of history of how the town started.I liked the references to all the ways it is to be superstitious that kids might not be aware of.


    19. I just picked this book up one day because I needed something to read, and boy, was I surprised! Its a light/quick read but the plot and story is unique and different, great idea and I wish there was a second book.



    20. Quite a delightful light read, it falls as boring and slow at some points, but I enjoyed the ending so much!


    21. A quick fun read. I didn't love the "society" created by the author but the overall plot and characters were fun to read about.


    22. A student lent me this book. I loved it! It's light, fun, and yet still delves into some deep thoughts. The one gripe I have is that the cat on the cover has a long tail and Jinx is bob tailed.


    23. Sadie has one week before she takes a test where she is sorted a being a Lucky or Unlucky. Things don't look good for her chances of passing!


    24. I liked this book because it had cool fairytale elements like curses and bad luck. I wouldnt say I loved it because I dont really like to read but it was aight.


    25. This book was really good! The idea was very creative and I couldn’t stop reading. I like the way the book ended and highly recommend.



    26. 201 pages. Interesting but refers to 12 year olds. I read three chapters/29 pages. Its about a girl named Sadie who is an "undetermined" status until the "spring test" when kids are sorted out as "luckies" or "unluckies." After that they are sent to special schools and unluckies aren't allowed out in the general public because they are considered too dangerous. This is a unique book but I think it is more middle school related with the content. I would not recommend for elementary level.


    27. : In a city where you can never step on a crack, or you will break your mother’s back, you must hold your breath as you pass the cemetery, never walk under a ladder and never, ever cross the path of a black cat; Sadie Baker has her work cut out for her. Not only is she known for being unlucky in every way, she is also dreading the upcoming Luck Test, which all students must take as soon as they turn twelve. The Luck Test, doesn’t just determine if you will be attending Flourish Academy, for [...]
