Product description

Review

"Stevie Hart puts the cool in homeschool. Whip-smart dialogue, top-notch writing, and truly unique characters make for the perfect reading combination: quick pacing and heartaching. This book is alive in so many ways."--David Arnold, bestselling author of Mosquitoland

"LUCKY FEW swings between a wholly immersive search for a hand to hold in the midst of fear and loss, and navigating the vulnerable joy of true friendship and first love - a totally unique, beautifully crafted story at once hilarious and heartbreaking, exhilarating as the waters of Barton Springs. This book absolutely sings, without forsaking the honesty of loneliness and self-doubt - and the bravery it takes to become who we truly are."--Jennifer Longo, author of Six Feet Over It and Up to this Pointe

"A beautifully written story of loss and acceptance, of humor and tragedy, of finding yourself by losing yourself."--Marci Lyn Curtis, author of The One Thing

*"Ormsbee writes with an occasionally tongue-in-cheek tone that manages to be authentically emotional while delivering a realistic picture of a population that rarely gets much scrutiny in fiction for young adults: home-schoolers. The smart, efficient language features dialogue that pops. A sweet story told with intelligence, humor, and just the right amount of kissing."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"This quirky novel brings humor, relatable characters, and an inside look into the world of homeschoolers. . . . A fun, character-driven novel likely to find readers among fans of realistic fiction."--School Library Journal

*"Winsome characters, crackling dialogue, and an effortlessly enjoyable writing style help this one stand out in the crowded contemporary YA marketplace."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"This second novel from Ormsbee shines in its offbeat humor."--Publishers Weekly
