July 31, 2014

How about a lost election, detention, mismatched socks, and being embarrassed in front of the whole school? On a mission to turn her luck around, 13-year-old Meghan McGlinchey must travel to Ireland to fix what has been broken in Cindy Callaghan’s "Lucky Me."

Cape Region author Callaghan and Cold Stone Creamery in Rehoboth are teaming up to create the Lucky Me Mint Mashup inspired by "Lucky Me!" They invite everyone to be there as Callaghan creates the Lucky Me Mint Mashup Sunday, Aug. 3, at 1 p.m., in the Rehoboth location at 43 B Rehoboth Ave. The author will be available for photos and interviews and would be happy to share more about her new book.

Meghan McGlinchey is the most superstitious girl in her family - and probably in the entire state of Delaware. When she receives a chain letter from a stranger in Ireland, Meghan immediately passes it on, taking only a tiny shortcut in the directions, and breaks the chain. Thankfully, her family was already headed to Ireland on spring break, and Meghan makes it her mission to find the original sender and break her extremely unlucky streak. After breaking a chain letter, can superstitious Megan find a way to turn her luck around?

“This humorous novel has elements of mystery, sibling drama, Irish history and geography, and a bit of light tween romance. Readers will want to stick around to see if Meghan's luck takes a turn for the better.” - School Library Journal.
