Waiting on Wednesday: Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

Girl Against the Universe
Author: Paula Stokes
Release Date: 17 May 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
No matter how many charms she buys off the internet or good luck rituals she performs each morning, horrible things happen when Maguire is around. Like that time the rollercoaster jumped off its tracks. Or the time the house next door caught on fire. Or that time her brother, father, and uncle were all killed in a car crash—and Maguire walked away with barely a scratch.

It’s safest for Maguire to hide out in her room, where she can cause less damage and avoid meeting new people who she could hurt. But then she meets Jordy, an aspiring tennis star. Jordy is confident, talented, and lucky, and he’s convinced he can help Maguire break her unlucky streak. Maguire knows that the best thing she can do for Jordy is to stay away. But it turns out staying away is harder than she thought.

From author Paula Stokes comes a funny and poignant novel about accepting the past, embracing the future, and learning to make your own luck.

Been meaning to read this book! OMG. The cover is perfect for the summer seasons and this book reminds of a movie. Remember Just My Luck? Where Lindsay Lohan eventually gets all the luck in the world then when she kissed Chris Pine she loses every luck she had? Haha.  Anyway! Looking forward to reading this!
