If You're Lucky by Yvonne Prinz

ls Georgia's mind playing tricks on her, or is the entire town walking into the arms of a killer who has everyone but her fooled? When seventeen year old Georgia's brother drowns while surfing halfway around the world in Australia, she E refuses to believe that Lucky's death was just bad luck. Lucky was smart. He wouldn't have surfed in waters more E dangerous than he could handle. Then a stranger named Fin arrives in False Bay, claiming to have been Lucky's best friend. Soon Fin is working for Lucky's father, charming Lucky's mother, dating Lucky's girlfriend. Georgia begins to wonder: Did Fin murder her brother in order to take over his whole life? Determined to clear the fog from her mind in order to uncover the truth about Lucky's death, Georgia secretly stops taking the medication that keeps away the voices in her head. She is certain she's getting closer and closer to the truth about Fin, but as she does, her mental state becomes more and more precarious, and no one seems to trust what she's saying. As the chilling narrative unfolds, the reader must decide whether Georgia's descent into madness is causing her to see things that don't exist or to see the deadly truth.


Smart, sarcastic, and wickedly insightful, If You're Luckyis a remarkable page-turner. The tense coils of its dangerously tightening clock spring keep readers wondering, twist by twist, if Georgia's universe will simply burst apart. Andrew Smith, author ofGrasshopper Jungle A solid page turner. Kirkus Reviews A hold-on-to-your-seat thriller . . . Prinz does an excellent job building suspense and bending reality as Georgia, haunted by ghosts and troubling dreams, slowly uncovers the truth. . . . As she tries to make sense of what is happening, Georgia s courage in the face of isolation from the people around her is poignant. Prinz has created a memorable character who must battle her demons, inside and out. Quill & Quire Georgia s suspicious mind is a fascinating place to spend time . . . this moody mystery will keep readers hooked. Publishers Weekly Well-developed characters, a charming ocean-front oyster village, and a remarkable expose into mental illness make for an unusual. . . YA murder mystery. Booklist The setting, with its overcast feel and chill in the air, is an apt metaphor for Georgia s state of mind. The protagonist ranks among the best of unreliable narrators in YA literature, leaving readers uncertain, confused, and utterly absorbed. . . Give this dark, broody novel to psychological drama fans and teens who enjoy books by Alex Flinn, David Klass, Pete Hautman, and Gail Gile. School Library Journal Harrowing...a perfectly pitched blossoming thriller. Lewis Buzbee, author ofThe Haunting of Charles Dickens If You re Luckyis a perfectly calibrated mystery that s heart-racing, emotionally precise and spellbindingly good. Prinz writes with true velocityand in this book of secrets every page that turns cranks up the tension and every sentence pulls the suspense tighter. The truth that s lurking in False Bay is gripping and disturbing and well worth the foggy ride into the darkness. Stereo Embers Magazine
