Brooke's Bad Luck by Jo Whittemore

Filled with humor, friendship, and middle school antics, the Confidentially Yours series-about a group of kids who run their school newspaper's advice column-continues on in its fifth installment. Perfect for fans of the Cupcake Diaries or Candy Apple books. Brooke Jacobs never considered herself to be the superstitious type. But after she and her friends visit a psychic who tells Brooke she's in for some bad luck, the panic sets in. And when Brooke hurts her arm, gets into a major fight with her boyfriend, and turns into a total klutz in soccer, she's convinced her misfortune is here to stay. To make matters worse, the Lincoln Log-the newspaper where she and her best friends write their advice column-is competing in an important contest. Brooke, Vanessa, Heather, Tim, and the rest of the team need to put together their best issue yet. There's no time for bad luck ...but that's all Brooke seems to have. Not wanting to let everyone down, Brooke must decide, once and for all, who's in charge of her life: a silly superstition or herself. And she better find out fast, because bad luck or not, the contest must go on.


PRAISE FOR CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS #1: The banter and quips bouncing around among these classmates and friends energize the story, which reinforces the importance of recognizing one's limits, learning how to both take and give advice, and knowing how to be a good friend. -- Publishers Weekly
