Three Times Lucky

Sheila Turnage
A hilarious Southern debut with the kind of characters you meet once in a lifetime Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone's business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she's been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her "upstream mother," she's found a home with the Colonel--a café owner with a forgotten past of his own--and Miss Lana, the fabulous café hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known. Full of wisdom, humor, and grit, this timeless yarn will melt the heart of even the sternest Yankee.

This is a good adventure mystery book that would appeal to both boys and girls. Mo is smart and spunky and easy to relate to. However there are some adult themes in the story. For example, Mo is found lost and/or abandoned by her family and found by the Coronel. There is a murder, of someone that Mo and Dale are not necessarily close to, but know and also kidnapping. Most mature is the scene describing Dale’s dad being physically and verbally abusive toward his family.
