Series: The Good Luck Girls, Book Two

Synopsis: The Good Luck Girls are free. Aster’s sister and friends have new lives across the border in Ferron, while Aster remains in Arketta, helping more girls escape. But news of a new welcome house opening fills Aster with a need to do more than just help individual girls. And an unexpected reunion gives her an idea of how to do it. From there, grows a wildly ambitious plan to free all dustbloods, who live as prisoners to Arketta’s landmasters and debt slavery.

When Clementine and the others return from Ferron, they become the heart of a vibrant group of fearless fighters, working to unite the various underclasses and convince them to join in the fight. Along the way, friendships will be forged, lives will be lost, and love will take root even in the harshest of circumstances, between the most unexpected of lovers.

But will Arketta’s dustbloods finally come into power and freedom, or will the resistance just open them up to a new sort of danger?

My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★★☆

I was so excited to jump into this one after reading the first book, and it did not disappoint. I was completely hooked from the start, as with the last book. I loved that the Good Luck Girls got revenge for themselves and every other girl that went through the same thing.

As with the first book, I love that the book mirrors reality. There’s racism, child trafficking, and a corrupt system. I personally found that the book does a better job at showing how the corrupt system affects everyone, including the oppressors. This is everything I could look for in an uprising and rebellion YA book.

I was completely torn on Aster’s relationship. While I thought she and Eli were sweet, I really wanted her to be with Violet. I thought there was more chemistry between them than Aster and Eli, and I’m a sucker for (fr)enemies to lovers. [SPOILER] I can happily say that I was not disappointed with how it turned out!

I still struggled a bit with the world-building, but it wasn’t as bad as the first time. It was easier to picture everything pretty clearly. Some of it felt a bit repetitive, but otherwise, I really loved this book and the author’s writing style. I can’t wait to read more from them!
