Chance’s Way (The Alberta Adventures Book 3) is a work of fiction in the Canadian life, social issues, and interpersonal drama subgenres, and was penned by Nancy M. Bell. Written for the young adult reading audience, the work contains moderate curse words but nothing graphic or wildly inappropriate for the YA age range. In this adventure, we encounter Chance Cullen: a wannabe rodeo star in need of a sponsor. Surrounded by the screwups he’s made in life so far, Chance knows it’s going to take a miracle to turn things around, but he won’t let them stop him as he tries to break free of the past. Can he get the job, the girl, and the life he wants?

Author Nancy M. Bell has crafted a great YA drama that will introduce readers to country life in Canada, with sweet romance and highly relatable protagonists. Chance’s journey was intelligently penned and well-balanced to give a heartfelt but not overdone approach to his big life turnaround. The issues surrounding his ne’er-do-well father were so interesting to explore, and you could really feel Chance’s family conflict coming through. I also enjoyed the presentation of Laurel immensely, and her dialogue and charm made me want to read the rest of the books in the Alberta Adventures series to see her personal journey too. Overall, I would recommend Chance’s Way to fans of the existing series and new readers seeking emotional tales of young people just setting out to carve a future for themselves despite their setbacks and adversities.
