Review: Three Times Lucky

Three Times Lucky
by Sheila Turnage
Book Description:
Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone's business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she's been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her "upstream mother," she's found a home with the Colonel--a café owner with a forgotten past of his own--and Miss Lana, the fabulous café hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known.

Though this book is aimed for a slightly younger audience, it is a GREAT read. 
It has murder, it has mayhem...it has a killer storm, it has a kidnapping, it has HUMOR.  There is action around every corner in this story and Mo has a funny little sarcastic remark about every bit of it.
Mo is one of my favorite narrators to date. She is smart and a smart-alek.  She doesn't take nothing from nobody and when she decides she's going to do something she gets it done!
Try this one out. You won't be sorry.
