Are you looking for your next great Realistic Fiction read? Read about Summer's journey of self-discovery as she learns that luck sometimes arrives in disguise.
"Summer knows that kouun means “good luck” in Japanese, and this year her family has none of it. Just when she thinks nothing else can possibly go wrong, an emergency whisks her parents away to Japan—right before harvest season. Summer and her little brother, Jaz, are left in the care of their grandparents, who come out of retirement in order to harvest wheat and help pay the bills."
From the publisher
"Kadohata makes all the right choices in structure and narrative…Readers who pull back the layers of obsessions and fears will find a character who is determined, compassionate and altogether delightful."
