The Good Luck Girls | Sticky Note Review

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls―they know their luck is anything but.

Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings.

Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.

When Clementine accidentally kills a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.

It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive.

I can’t remember where I first heard about The Good Luck Girls, but I know I talked to a representative at Tor Teen when I was in Baltimore in November, and this was one of four books he hand-sold to me. On the last day of the conference, when we were all lining up to get two free books, this was one of the books I had my eye on. I was lucky enough to get it.

His pitch, similar to the one I’ve seen online, is that it’s Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale. These are two shows that are watched regularly in my house, so I’m totally here for it.

The library classifies it as “western” and “fantasy,” so I’m expecting some horse chases and some other-worldly type creatures. I’m ready for a good romp.
