Summary:  When love isn't lucky...or pretty.

The scars on Beth's face aren't nearly as deep as the ones she nurses on the inside. She was born with hemifacial microsomia and was supposed to feel "lucky" that she wasn't as disfigured as some people.

One boy, Lucky O'Leary, starts to find the cracks in her hard shell and finds himself falling for her. Only Lucky has a secret--he needs to bring Beth to a "dog dinner" or lose his spot on the team. She can't find out that the guy who brings the ugliest date wins a prize.

Review:  This was a very short, quick read. The book tells the story of a girl, Beth, who works at a diner. She has low self-esteem and tries to cover her face with her hair, due to her disability. She meets a boy, Lucky, who never seems to have an off day. They develop a friendship over time, but it's brought to a hault when Lucky is ordered to bring Beth to a dog-dinner…the ending result is priceless.
