Livie and her best friend, each get a chain letter on the same day. Livie, who is not superstitious, tears her letter in half and tosses it in the trash. Joyce on the other hand, who is not only superstitious, but a bit compulsive hand writes all her letters on the same day she gets her chain letter; unfortunately, her letters go astray. Joyce claims that all of the unfortunate events are a direct result of Livie tearing up her letter.
This story contains suspense, a little horror, some slapstick and characters that you will care about. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440420113, Paperback)

Livvie isn’t superstitious like her best friend, Joyce, who thinks everything is bad luck. So Livvie isn’t worried about tearing up the chain letter and throwing it away–until she’s humiliated in gym class, falls down her back stairs, and gets invited to Thanksgiving dinner at Peter Finch’s house. Peter’s dad has crooked teeth, a plastic wonderland in his front yard, and some kind of secret up in his study. There is no way Livvie wants Phil Finch to date her mom.

But it’s hard work keeping their families apart–especially when Livvie is assigned to work on the sixth-grade snow maze project with Peter. Clearly, Joyce was right: breaking the chain was a huge mistake. And the only way to set things straight is to find out who sent the letter in the first place. . . .

Rich in humor and suspense, Julie Schumacher’s absorbing novel is about friendship, choices, and the kind of luck that really matters.
