Lucky Me by Saba Kapur - Releasing April 5, 2016
Our first book of the year is our fun-filled, laugh-out-loud young adult novel, Lucky Me by Saba Kapur, releasing April 5, 2016.
"For eighteen year old Gia Winters, having a movie star for a father, a former Playboy bunny as a mother, a Hollywood mansion, and a closet stocked with Chanel is simply another day in the life.
But her world is turned upside down when her father mysteriously hires a group of bodyguards to trail the family 24/7 and threatening phone calls from a “Dr. D” start buzzing daily.
When Gia scores the coveted role of Miss Golden Globe, she is forced to strike a deal with her bodyguard, Jack, who is almost as arrogant as he is attractive. Juggling Gia’s romantic failures, fashion faux pas, and hunky celebrity obsessions, the duo investigate a series of clues with the help of a police cadet, who has a special set of skills and an even better set of dimples.
But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, danger levels rise higher than her stilettos as Gia learns that the biggest secrets might be the ones buried in her own home.
In a place where the hills have eyes, high school nemeses, bad hair days, raging parties, and stolen kisses, there can only be trouble for a girl who was just starting to consider herself lucky."

This book was hilarious! I'm obsessed with the characters (especially the main character, Gia!) and I need a sequel asap!! This is such a fun read and I actually laughed out loud a few times! - Stephanie V.
I loved this! It's like a 1950s screwball comedy complete with poisoned dumplings and a couple of charismatic lead characters. - Roman C.
