Strange Luck by Amie Irene Winters is a young adult fantasy that takes the reader on a magical adventure into a strange and unique new world. Daisy is 17 and wants to save her father from his chronic condition. So she sets out to discover a cure, accidentally ending up in The Nameless, a strange and wicked world. Here, Daisy discovers moaning caverns and a group of people who will not travel above ground. The inhabitants of this unique land are more than just strange. Daisy thinks they are hiding a clever and dark secret. With the help of Roger, Daisy sets out on a unique adventure through this strange land that includes a mysterious letter, a map, a strange collection of antiques, and stolen memories. There are scary wizards, imaginary but beautiful landscapes, and psychological challenges that Daisy and Roger must overcome to unravel the secret of this strange land and its equally strange inhabitants and return home to save Daisy's father.
This is a daring adventure story full of vivid imagery and beautiful landscape descriptions. It is especially great for readers who love an imaginative escapade and fantastical worlds where anything can happen. The characters were fully developed and fun to root for (or, in some cases, root against). Readers will relate to Daisy's quest and follow along on her incredible journey as she tries to find answers to the questions she longs the most to have answered in life.
