Newbery Honor winner Three Times Lucky


Three Times Lucky has won a Newbery Honor Award and is nominated for an Edgar Award.   

Eleven years after she washed ashore in Tupelo Landing, North Carolina, Miss Moses LoBeau (or Mo for short) is a rising sixth-grader. She helps out in the town's quirky cafe and is a founding member of the Desparado Detectives. Her summer is looking good . . . that is until Mr. Jesse is murdered, Miss Lana and the Colonel are kidnapped, and Hurricane Amy arrives. It's a good thing Mo has always been lucky!
