The third and supposedly final book about Lucky Trimble of Hard Pan, California (population 43) isn't quite as good as the first two, but it's still mighty good. It doesn't quite qualify as a coming-of-age story. At the end of the book there is a little brief hinting that Lucky is growing up, but the real coming of age will have to be imagined, unless Patron decides to go one more round.
This book focuses more on the community of Hard Pan coming together to save the restaurant run by Lucky's adoptive mother Brigitte, when the state health department discovers that the restaurant is not in line with one of their codes. There is less substance to this book, but it's a nice revisit to the town and characters I grew to love in the first two books, and Lucky is back to her largely lovable self*. What meat there is deals with Lucky's desire to learn something about the totally absent father she never knew.
(*In the second book, Lucky Breaks, her "meanness gland" was bit overactive, making her a less appealing protagonist than in the first book.) ( )

A good ending to the trilogy. In this story Lucky has to deal with the possible closure of Brigitte's cafe and learns more about her father. ( )

Three boys in this story are very chaming.
