This sweet but predictable contemporary romance deals with complicated relationships and miscommunication. It's clear that Josie and Lucky have chemistry, and readers will love their witty banter, but Chasing Lucky progresses too slowly with unnecessary drama. As Josie begins to understand why Lucky took the blame for her mistake and uncovers shocking family secrets, teens will see how essential open, honest communication is in a healthy relationship.
