Description

Some girls have all the luck.

So far, Carrie Fitzgerald's sixteen years have been pretty sweet. Straight A's, an adorable boyfriend, a starting position on the varsity basketball team...

But Carrie's luck is about to, well, change.

Suddenly, her boyfriend dumps her (to "hang out with his friends"!), she and her best friend have a massive blowout, and she gets a D on a biology test. Carrie knows what's wrong -- her mom accidentally donated her lucky T-shirt to Help India. That one adorable, perfect T-shirt was the source of all her good fortune.

So Carrie does what any girl would do: She's going to India. Cross your fingers and hope that Carries finds adventure, love, and maybe just a little good luck along the way....

From Publishers Weekly

20 June 2005 – The author of The V Club (aka The Virginity Club, in paperback) cooks up another frothy novel from an original premise and delivers a positive message. When Carrie's parents divorced, her father gave her a "lucky" T-shirt from Morocco; after that Carrie lands a spot on the varsity basketball team, leads in school plays-and even scores a cute boyfriend, Jason. She also secretly hopes that it will "make her lucky enough to bring her family back together." But when her mother accidentally donates the T-shirt to Help India, Jason suddenly breaks up with Carrie, and she blows a big test. To retrieve her shirt, the California teen joins her mother's hippie best friend and her obnoxious daughter, Doreen (whom she nicknames "Dor-mean"), on a volunteer vacation in Calcutta. The plot is predictable, from Carrie's unconvincing reconciliation with Doreen, to her slow realization that she has it better off than most, with or without her shirt. But readers get a vivid sampling of Calcutta ("A few feet away a man sold steaming hot, spicy-scented meat out of a pot.... People bustled around, pausing to make purchases or bargain with hawkers") and may also get caught up in Carrie's romance with a college student and volunteer, even if the writing occasionally strikes readers as over-the-top ("He had this sultry deepness to his voice that Carrie just wanted to record and listen to on her iPod player for all eternity"). Ages 14-up.
