Have you ever had a family member die when you are a young age? Well, in this book Lucky Strikes by Louis Bayard, that's what happens to the mom. Amelia is the protagonist. She has no other family around her besides for her little brother and little sister. So now they have to run their own life running a family gas station and taking care of her brother and sister. How would that feel to you? The antagonist is the father because he left them. They have no money what so ever. She lost half her family no one to help her when she needs help there's nothing. The conflict in the story is Amelia's mom dying the solution is Amelia just going through what happened. In this book the setting is placed at where the mom was buried and at the family gas station and the time of this is in 1934. Two major conflicts in my book are Amelia's mom dying and Amelia's dad leaving her. The turning point in this story is when Amelia overcomes what had happened with her mother and father. I would recommend this book to someone who likes sad stories and maybe even someone who has had a death like that.
