Book Description

Mouse is doing his best to stay out of trouble. Cat is doing her best to land herself in it.

They've both had it pretty tough so when they meet by chance they thank their lucky stars. Weird and wonderful things happen when they're together but how long can it last? Because everyone has their secrets and there can be only one winner in a game of cat and mouse.

Can't there?

Cathy Cassidy's hugely engaging writing has massive appeal for 13 year olds. Cathy's last book, Sundae Girl, spent six weeks in the Bookscan top ten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucky Star is a brilliant book to read. 7 Oct. 2007
By Z-Red
Lucky Star is a brilliant book to read. It feels like your getting pulled into the story and you never want to stop reading it. Lucky star is about a boy of 14 called Mouse. (That also appeared in Dizzy Cathy Cassidys 1st book but is not a sequel)
Mouse has been a trouble maker since he was 7. He has done the most naughtist things ever. Now he has graffited a whole wall in his school. He doesn't want to get into anymore trouble. Mouse then meets a girl called Cat and they quickley become friends. The only problem is Cat wants to get into trouble but of course Mouse doesn't.

Cathy Cassidy is a great author and her book is a fab read.
If you love Jacqueline Wilson then you'll really love Cathy Cassidy.

5.0 out of 5 stars brill book 1 Mar. 2008
Cathy Cassidy is an amazing author who has written a few award winning books. she was born in Coventry and she came to my school (in Coventry) where she signed some books and she signed one for me as well as saying she really liked my name and might use it in one of her new books but who knows. Anyway, back to the book: This book is a follow up, not a sequel, for her first book called Dizzy. It has Mouse, a fourteen-year-old boy whose really name is Martin and he lives with his mum in a very bad area called Eden Estate which is packed with drug dealers and bad guys. It covers lots of modern day problems: drug dealing, lies, and cruelty to poor, helpless animals. :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars lucky star reveiw 16 Aug. 2011
lucky star is a brilliant book by cathy cassidy a sequal to dizzy (a book about a girl who's mother comes to see her and takes her to a series of suumer festivals where she meets many people including mouse, the main character in lucky star). lucky star is set 6-7 years later where mouse, a boy who's always in trouble is trying to reform himself ant cat, a well-off girl who's looking for trouble, both have something to hide. when the pair meet, their lives change forever, all sorts of amazing things happen. this book tells people that they can stand up for what they belive in, and that if you do this others will to, if you have read dizzy and enjoyed it you will love lucky star

4.0 out of 5 stars Good balance of drama and realism. 19 Aug. 2015
By Hannah
'Lucky Star' is all about a boy named Mouse who is from a troubled background. He has a huge secret and often finds himself expressing his anger and torment in a criminal way of graffiti. However, when he is trying to get on the straight and narrow, Mouse finds that his problems are only getting worse. His mums hopes and dreams are shattered, his house is burgled and he is a drug dealers new enemy all because of a rescued dog. To top it all of, Mouse has just met a girl named Cat, mystical, beautiful and...trouble! Although she isn't the most truthful person, Mouse finds himself falling for her and dealing with the drama-filled lifestyle that he gets from living on a criminal built estate.

'Lucky Star' is a book I didn't expect to like. Cathy Cassidy is very clever at writing a good valid perception of issues, especially from a girls point of view, so I was worried about reading a book from a boys point of view, considering I have never read Cathy do something like that. However, she delivered it well. It's not too soppy and sloshy that you think it's more girly then it really should be. She releases the true feelings of a boy and shows the daily struggles a boy would go through, as well as highlighting the drama in Mouse's life really well. The storyline of the book is really strong. I love how it connects with her previous book, Dizzy. The secret of Mouse's face and scars is remarkable and leaves you wondering every now and then and it's not overly predictable.

The subject of drugs is a heavy topic in this book which Cathy has delivered well. She highlights the story of an ex drug abuser as well as dealers and users now. It's a subtle subject that she harshly pummels into the storyline, adding drama and truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, A Little Dramatic... 18 July 2014
By Lisa
My daughters review of the book:

Lucky Star is a very hard hitting drama filled novel by Cathy Cassidy. It's from the perspective of 14 year old, Mouse, who lives on a dodgy estate and is living a life of drug-filled dramas. His dad left when he was younger and his mother is an ex addict, so Mouse finds himself feeling a little lost every now and then. He often relies on his graffiti work and his vandalism to make him feel better or to get his point across. So when he finds himself trying to get on the straight and narrow, unfortunately he finds a girl named Cat, awaiting to mess it all up. Cat is perfect, beautiful and a little odd, yet she's daring and is willing to try out the outer life and 'slumming it'. However, when Mouse discovers Cat's secret after sharing his dreadful heartache from the past, Mouse is upset and feels tortured by the whole thing. On top of all of that, his mothers hopes and dreams have been burnt down (literally!), his flat broken into and he has made an enemy with a raging drug dealer. Great...

This book is amazing, yet very hard hitting. The topic of drugs is a heavy subject in the novel and every chapter has at least a reference to dealers, drugs or even addiction. It's truthful, but it's not too graphic so a young reader can still pleasantly enjoy this book. However, I'd be aware of the reference to drugs and the truth behind some estates as it can be upsetting for others. If you like truth and real dramas, then this is the kinda book you'd love.

I'm not the target audience (I'm 16) yet I found this book compelling and amazingly captivating. I was often turning the pages because I couldn't stop the drama. Sometimes, it's so full of drama I found myself re-reading a few bits just because I felt like I had missed something.
