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.

I would recommend this book to any 11-15 year old girl (or boy, i suppose) as a truly fab read. I absolutley love how the charcters and plots from Dizzy weave in and out of Lucky Star and really connects it. Without that background I don't think this story would have worked but it really has, and I can't stress how awesome it is!

If you want a full and detailed understanding of this story, then I suggest you read Dizzy first, just so you know the charcters and their past. Overall, a great book by a totally talented author! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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. :-(

*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*
This is one of the few Cathy Cassidy books that I haven't ever actually read before. And I really felt as if I ought to, because my friends have all said it's good, and it sounded pretty interesting, and also, it's told from a boy's perspective (which is unusual in a Cathy Cassidy book), and also, that boy happens to be Mouse, who is my favourite character in my favourite Cathy Cassidy book (that book being 'Dizzy'). So I picked 'Lucky Star' up, and read it in two days, and I wasn't actually disappointed.
So, it's seven years after the events of 'Dizzy' took place, and Mouse is no longer the small, timid seven year old he once was, but is a slightly rebellious boy at the ripe old age of fourteen, living on the notorious Eden Estate with his mum, an ex-drug addict.
Mouse gets into trouble a lot (mostly because what he considers to be 'artwork', other people see as vandalism), his teachers hate him, and school is an utter bore. But Mouse's life is about to change.
Cue Cat, the crazy, quirky, beautiful girl who has just come crashing into Mouse's world, dragging a whole lot of trouble behind her. What starts off as a fun friendship quickly becomes something more, and it is not long before Mouse finds himself living for the time he spends with Cat. Insane, wonderful things happen when they're together, but everyone has secrets, and soon Mouse realises that there can only be one winner in a game of cat and mouse.
I'd like to start off by saying that there was so much about this book that I liked.
Firstly, the age thing. Can we just appreciate that Mouse is fourteen, not twelve, the age that Cathy Cassidy is so fond of? And Cat- she's fourteen too!

'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.
