The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Good Luck Girls are anything but lucky. The girls are sold to a “welcome” house as children, marked with “favors” to depict their positions as “Good Luck Girls” and trained to entertain “brags” (men who have enough money to pay for the girls attention). When Clementine accidentally kills a brag on her Lucky Night (the first night a Good Luck Girl officially starts her night-time duties), the girls rally together to protect her the only way they can- they run away. The girls know that if they are caught they face death or a brutal punishment even worse than death. They are joined on their journey by a mysterious rangeman who has a few secrets of his own but is willing to help the girls escape. The group try to track down Lady Ghost, a possibly fictional character mentioned in countless bedtime stories, in order to remove their favors. Along the way they have to battle the law, the wilderness and even vengeful spirits.
I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for a review. From the very first line, I was hooked. I loved the writing, the world-building, the characters, EVERYTHING!
This was a book about strong females fighting against a world who didn’t see them as equal and I loved that.
The ending was spectacularly beautiful and I cannot wait for the sequel. This book was everything I didn’t know I needed in a novel and I enjoyed it immensely.
