The Lottery's Plus One; Emma Donoghue

The Lotterys Plus OneThe Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cute. And very obviously so: Donoghue is trying very, very hard to appeal to a middle grade reader with a love of puns. The diversity is wielded with a heavy hand and doesn't feel (to this reader) at all natural. Still, this is a relatively clever update on books like The Saturdays and that's not a bad thing at all.
