LUCKY, by Rachel Vail

Can you be lucky when your whole world is falling apart?

What do you call a girl whose parents are rich, who’s about to graduate from 8th grade in a Vera Wang dress, and who’s about to have the best, most expensive graduation party anyone can remember?  Would you call her lucky?  Phoebe doesn’t know just how fortunate she is until, right before the party, her mother loses her job and tough times arrive.   All of a sudden, Phoebe has to look at her life and wonder:  do her friends like her for herself, or just because she’s rich and has it all?  If her friends knew the truth, would she still be lucky?
