And it’s all The Bad Luck’s fault. So since Penelope's a superb artist, she comes up with a planshe's going to be the boss of the mural her school is making at the Portwaller’s Blessed Home for the Aged, which will make her into everyone’s Favorite. And maybe it’ll frighten The Bad Luck away. But things don't quite go as planned there either. And when an old woman named Nila promises to help Penelope find her luck so everyone will like her again, things get even worse! In the end, Penelope finds out that friendships aren't about luckand that it doesn't matter if you're anyone's Favorite when there are tons of people who love you.
