How do you change your luck? Katherine Centerâ€™s marvelously
entertaining and poignant new novel is about choosing to
look for happinessâ€”and maybe getting lucky enough to find it.
Sarah Harper isnâ€™t sure if the stupid decisions she
sometimes makes are good choices in disguiseâ€”or if theyâ€™re
really just stupid. But either way, after forwarding an
inappropriate email to her entire company, she suddenly
finds herself out of a job.
So she goes home to Houstonâ€”and her sister,
Mackieâ€”for Thanksgiving. But before Sarah can share her
troubles with her sister, she learns that Mackie has some
woes of her own: After years of trying, Mackieâ€™s given up on
having a babyâ€”and plans to sell on eBay the entire nursery
sheâ€™s set up. Which gives Sarah a brilliant ideaâ€”an idea
that could fix everyoneâ€™s problems. An idea that gives Sarah
the chance to take care of her big sister for onceâ€”instead
of the other way around.
But nothing worthwhile is ever easy. After a decade away,
Sarah is forced to confront one ghost from her past after
another: the father sheâ€™s lost touch with, the memories of
her mother, the sweet guy she dumped horribly in high
school. Soon everything that matters is on the lineâ€”and
Sarah can only hope that by changing her life she has
changed her luck, too.
