Can you make your own luck? That’s what Summer contemplates as her family’s streak of bad luck lengthens. An emergency whisks her parents away to Japan just before the harvest season; her grandparents, Obaachan and Jiichan have stepped in to help but are old fashioned and demanding. There may be only one way to save her family; it’s time for Summer to make her own luck. National Book Award Winner.
