Lucky T

Book review #13
Lucky T by Kate Brian
Rating: Three stars (refer to the rating system on the right)

16 year old Carrie,  has everything going for her, due to a lucky t-shirt given to her by her dad who she rarely sees. One day, her lucky T accidentally gets thrown into a give-away pile for kids in India, from that day on Carrie's luck dramatically changed. Guess where Carrie spends her summer vacation? India! Carrie travels half-way around the world to track down her lucky t-shirt, finding love, adventure, and hopefully a little luck on the way.

 Lucky T isn't the best book the world, but it was a good light read. The plot is a bit predictable and the story line is kind of crazy. Surprisingly the book doesn't only focus on the importance of a t-shirt, but touches on other aspects such as romance, believing in yourself, and friendship. It was really nice reading a book that was set in another place (India), I got to learned a lot about Indian culture and how life is like in India, which I didn't know much about before. The best part about the book was seeing Carrie's overall transformation, by the end of the trip the t-shirt isn't her main priority, she grows up a lot. Lucky T is a story about good will, forgiveness, taking chances and taking responsibilities for your mistakes. In the end, not a bad read. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a funny/romantic read.

Thanks for the honest review. One thing that appeals to me about this book is the Indian setting.

This book seems like a very light read! Although it's interesting to learn about other cultures, so I might check it out if I see it in the library. Thanks for the review!
