Susan Patron's The Higher Power of Lucky (the 2007 Newbery Medal book) raised some eyebrows when it featured the word "scrotum" on the very first page. Like most censorship attempts, those attempting to ban it from school libraries overlooked the value of the book as a whole and missed the moving story of Lucky, a ten-year-old girl living in an isolated desert community, Hard Pan, with her guardian, Brigitte, her father's first wife. Lucky is looking for answers and eavesdrops on 12-step meetings that talk about a "Higher Power" to fuel her dreams. A first edition in Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket.
