Shelly Wilson’s Review of Lucky Star by Author Holly Curtis:

Lucky Star was like a trip down memory lane for me. Born in the 70s, I experienced my teenage years around the same time as the main character, Ben Somerset. I’d like to think we could have been friends.

Curtis moulds likeable characters with realistic ‘teen’ dialogue for the time, and the attention to detail is excellent; I’d almost forgotten about one pound notes!

The story was a bit slow for me, but I did like the 80s references. Being a parent of three teenagers, I’m not sure they’d ‘get’ this novel as there are so many retro references that would go over their head. I’m fairly sure they think I’m making it up when I say we didn’t have mobile phones! The author’s target audience is a young adult market, but I think this would appeal to their parents and grandparents rather than the intended readers.

Enjoyable read.
