Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The unstoppable, best-selling Collins delves into the fifteenth and sixteenth years of her signature character, Lucky Santangelo. Not as out of control as today's rebellious teens, Lucky fights for independence and the training she needs to be part of her father's Las Vegas hotel business, to no avail. Instead, this saga tracks Lucky through a number of exclusive boarding schools where she manages to make wild-child friends with other rich, spoiled young women. All of them spend their time picking up boys, not quite going all the way (with some exceptions), and avoiding the wrath of their absentee, overindulgent parents. Lucky crushes on her father's right-hand man, Marco, while worrying about her younger brother, Dario, and trying desperately to gain the attention of her father, Gino the Ram. As her name implies, she's incredibly lucky, even though her life is not a bed of roses. Unfortunately, this superficial look at Lucky's past doesn't really get to the heart of why the character turns into the beloved woman found in Collins' superpopular novels, from Chances (1981) to Goddess of Vengeance (2011).HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: No matter what, Collins sells, so this prequel to her popular Lucky Santangelo novels launches with a hefty print run and coast-to-coast print, radio, television, and online promotion.--Henshaw, Pat Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ambitious, cunning Lucky Santangelo, daughter of gangster Gino Santangelo, is one of Jackie Collins's most popular heroines. In this prequel, Collins goes back in time to tell the tale of Lucky's misspent youth as a wild 15-year-old: fooling around with countless boys, getting kicked out of stuffy boarding schools, secretly running off with a friend for a crazy adventure, and ultimately, being forced into an arranged marriage by her father. Narrator Poitier is well cast as Lucky, perfectly capturing the carefree, rebellious, defiant tone of a teen impatient to grow up and unwilling to play by anyone's rules. Poitier also has a lot of fun producing over-the-top character voices, including a strict French schoolmistress and a sassy fashion consultant. Canez narrates chapters told from Gino's point of view. His narration is serviceable and straightforward; it works, but Poitier is much more entertaining. A St. Martin's hardcover. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
