Lucky's Mountain

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Young Readers

The year is 1935 and Maggie Sullivan's world has fallen apart. Maggie has grown up in a close-knit mining community perched atop a mountain in British Columbia. But now her father has been killed in a mine explosion and she is being forced to leave the only home she has ever known. To make matters worse, she must also leave behind her best friend Lucky, the three-legged dog that was a special gift from Pa.


"a fast moving book... [with a] spunky heroine... Recommended."


"many threads can be teased from this book, including school bullies, courage, accepting people regardless of their looks"
