What happens when lightning strikes on your 11th birthday? Find out what happens to Nate in the book Lucky Strike!

What happens when lightning strikes? You come back after a few weeks and actually write on your blog! I'm back and haven't forgotten about Book Talk Thursday. Vacation and summer have taken over right now. I'm really enjoying every minute of my summer and have been reading away. Today I bring another Virginia Readers' Choice book your way:  Lucky Strike by Bobby Pyron. {Affiliate links provided to fund future book purchases.}

Book Summary

Nate Harlow has always been unlucky, very unlucky. He never wins anything, not even a simple coin toss. But today, April 11, is his 11th birthday, and it is on a Saturday. Everything will be perfect as he and his best friend, Genesis (Gen) go to play Goofy Golf, or so Nate thinks. As they are playing golf, lightning strikes and hits him straight on. When he comes out of it, he is left with scars, but everything seems to go right for him, including his luck. He is so lucky that the entire town of Paradise Beach want him to help them "win" in life. He even has friends that he never had before but leaves his real friends behind. What happens when Nate realizes being lucky isn't all it was cracked up to be, and how will he get those friends back? A strange turn of events is the only thing that can help Nate...

Reasons to Read

Since it is summer, and all of these books can just be enjoyed or great as read alouds, I'm taking a different approach. I'll pass on reasons to read this book and enjoy every minute of it.

Lucky Strike is a fun read, full of lessons in friendship and understanding. But that's not all! Children will see the humor in the book. The mayor of the town is a dog named Barnacle Bill, yes a dog! They will also enjoy the story and suspense as they see what Nate and his friends will do for each other and the town.

A lesson in friendship and lightning, Lucky Strike will resonate with so many children everywhere!
