If you think that the County Health Department can just swoop in and close down Brigitte's Hard Pan CafÉ, then you obviously don't know Klinke Ken, Short Sammy, the "ologists", or the residents of Hard Pan--or Lucky and Brigitte for that matter. They'll have to move mountains to stop it (okay, not mountains, just an old cabin down a mountain), but there's not a chance in H.E. Double Hockey Sticks that Mr. Stu Burping of the Health Department will shut the doors on the cafÉ for good. Will there be a grand re-opening? You bet there will!

And speaking of H.E. Double Hockey Sticks, that's been on Miles' mind a lot lately. He's putting down his dinosaur books for fear of ending up there. His mother, Justine, has returned to Hard Pan with a bit of fire and brimstone on her lips. Miles wants to please her--and Jesus, but having Justine back in his life has made things all complicated and knotty. But, that's just the way it is with family sometimes--like with Lucky and her dad. He means well, she thinks, but the way he treats her (as if she doesn't exist) makes it hard to know what to do...and even harder to say goodbye.

The final book in the well-loved, award-winning series introduces new friends--Stick, Lucky's Facebook friend and long-lost aunt, and Ollie, the MUCH bigger boy that Lucky socks in the face--and old friends--Paloma, Lincoln, Miles and 43 residence of Hard Pan. In facing deep questions of belief and faith, truth and meaning, this concluding book continues to explore the vast, rocky, landscape of the human heart. As always, Lucky is brave and foolish, impulsive and tender, vulnerable and determined. Ultimately she forges her own path: Lucky for good.
