Synopsis of 10 Lucky Things That Have Happened to Me Since I Nearly Got Hit by Lightning

Kids who love humor will love Effie Maloney.


Effie Maloney's life is perfect now that she has two best friends, Nit and Aurora. Effie's feeling lucky—until the Valentine's Day fiasco at their school, St. Dom's. Next, superathlete Aurora starts talking about leaving for public school, where the sports programs are better. Effie's got to come up with a scheme to make Aurora want to stay at St. Dom's.


Meanwhile, her mother's old college friend Frank, a priest, comes to stay at the Maloneys' under mysterious circumstances. And Effie's long-dreamed-of St. Patrick's Day slumber party gets out of control. Somehow, Effie's life doesn't seem so perfect anymore. . . .


Luck, friends, and family save the day in Mary Hershey's entertaining and touching companion to the delightful My Big Sister Is So Bossy She Says You Can't Read This Book.

Children's Literature

Effie Maloney, the lovable protagonist of My Big Sister is So Bossy She Says You Can't Read This Book is back in this companion book. Effie now has two best friends, Nit and Aurora, and she is feeling lucky indeed until the fiasco at Valentine's Day when Aurora gets suspended from school and decides that she might feel more at home in a public school instead of their Catholic school. Effie needs to think of something that will keep Aurora at St. Dom's. In the meantime Frank, an old college friend of her mom's who is a priest, shows up at their house and moves in with them for awhile. Effie wonders why he is being so mysterious about his reasons for wanting to stay with the Maloneys. To complicate matters, Effie's sister Maxey suddenly gets religious. In between trying to get Aurora to come back to St Dom's, keeping Frank's profession a secret, planning a St. Patrick's Day slumber party and trying to discover why Frank is hiding from his monsignor, Effie decides that maybe her luck is not as good as she thought it was. How this funny story gets sorted out will charm readers who liked the first book and those who are new to Effie and her family. Reviewer: Ellen Welty
