The Luck Thief
Katie Chloe McDaniels broke the rules.
She didn’t mean to break the rules— well, not the big one, anyway, because she didn’t know about it. But after an unusual hopscotch game, Katie becomes a Luck Thief; suddenly bad luck for anyone else means good luck for Katie. She might not even mind all that much (would you?), except that the bad luck for everybody else is getting worse and worse... and Katie doesn’t know how to stop it. With the help of an ice cream salesman named Lucky Eddie and the playground pariah “Jinx” Jenkins, Katie must discover a way to reverse the magic and restore the balance of luck to the Universe. To do it, she’s going to need all the luck she can steal, whether she wants it or not.
