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.From Amazon
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.
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.
