Nate Harlow is the unluckiest kid on the planet; he has never even won a coin toss!  When lightning strikes Nate on his eleventh birthday at the Goofy Golf mini-golf course, he not only survives, but his luck completely changes.  Suddenly he has friends, baseball ability, good fishing, carnival luck, and teachers donít call on him when he doesnít know the answer.  His new-found luck places many demands on his time, and he struggles to remain loyal to his first and best friend, Gen, and her project to save the turtles on the island.  When a dangerous hurricane lashes out during Genís attempt to save the turtle eggs, will Nate be there for her?  This realistic fiction novel explores friendships and the true meaning of luck.  (Oklahoma Childrenís Sequoyah 2018)
