Lucky Caller

Blurb: With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.

When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.

The members of Nina’s haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she’d hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.

The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina’s family is on the brink of some major upheaval.

Everything feels like it’s spiraling out of control—but maybe control is overrated?

My reading good luck for 2020 continues with this sweet book by Emma Mills, Lucky Caller.

Believing that there is enough angst and turmoil all around me in the world, I am more than happy to escape into worlds where relationships between siblings are wonderful; there are no mean girls; and while a parent might not be who you’d like him to be, he’s not a bad guy. And all of this can be found in Lucky Caller.

If you’re a fan of second chance romances, then you’ll love this story of Nina and Jamie, who had a falling out years ago over what was, in some ways, a misunderstanding, and in others, bad judgment. Now, during a radio class they have the opportunity to make things right. So sweet!

They are joined by with classmates, Joydip, whose mouth knows no censor and is outrageously funny, and Sasha, a smart, charismatic volleyball player whose repartee with Joydip is hysterical.

Like all good books, Lucky Caller has its share of funny, sweet, sad, and frustrating moments. Nina comes across as very human as she navigates life in which she suffers disappointment as well as creates it.

I highly recommend Lucky Caller to anyone who loves a sweet, funny YA romance. It’s light-hearted and filled with warmth and will make you smile.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
