But the book’s pace quickens in the war scenes, and the writing positively soars with Smiley’s description of Rosanna’s reflections during a Thanksgiving gathering in The book's title of Three Times Lucky refers to a passage in which Mo talks about her origin story and how she came to live in Tupelo Landing. Some say I was born unlucky that night. Not me. I say I was three times lucky. Lucky once when my Upstream Mother tied me to a makeshift raft and sent me swirling downstream to safety.

Clare Coffey lives in the Philadelphia area. She teaches kindergarten at a small Catholic school. She writes for NCR's Young Voices blog.
