Lucky You

ebook
An NPR Best Book of 2017



"A chillingly adroit debut novel." —Elle



Lucky You is a marvel of a book, partly because Carter does a perfect job balancing humor and tragedy . . . As an author, she’s both unsparing and compassionate, and among her greatest gifts is an ability to find a savage kind of beauty in the unlikeliest of places.” —Michael Schaub, NPR



Ellie, Chloe, and Rachel are friends (sort of), waitresses at the same dive bar in the Arkansas college town they’ve stuck around in too long, each becoming unmoored in her own way. When Rachel falls under the sway of a messianic boyfriend with whom she’s agreed to live off–grid for a year, she convinces Ellie and Chloe to join them in “The Project.” With startling exactitude and wickedly deadpan humor, Lucky You, lays bare the emotional core of its characters with surgical precision.
