I am 71 year's old I listen to a lot of mysteries I like cute ones I really like the cozy mysteries I like Christmas mysteries and horror
I listen to this book with my grandson he loved it narrator was great she had just the right voice for this book I was given this book free for a honest and unbiased review by the author narrator or publisher via audio book boom
I enjoyed the audiobook even more than the print version, which I also have.
I can't think of a single book that is like this one. The only thing I can think to compare it to is the movie "The Luck of the Irish" but Stolen Luck was much cuter and more interesting!
The narrator was full of life and energy. We really enjoyed her performance and characterizations! She gave the main character a very unique and youthful voice.
It was hard to get my 9 year old daughter to stop listening to this. We didn't listen to it fast enough for her, so she stole it and finished it by herself!
I listened to this book with my twelve year old daughter. she loves fantasy/adventure books. we usually listen to or read a book together in the evening before bed. she never wanted to turn it off! One Saturday morning she asked to listen to it when we got up and we finished it that way. The narrator really brought the story to life. It was engaging and I think what I loved most was the respectful tone between parents and children. there was also genuine love. and care between siblings and friends.
Absolutely! The narrator was fun and engaging, and the story quick-paced and fun.
Yes. There's a podcast I listen to daily for career development, and I found myself wanting to ignore it in favor of Stolen Luck!
I read this book when it was first released, but this version has been updated and expanded. While I enjoyed the story the first time, I LOVED it this time. Megan is spunky without being sassy, and kind without allowing others to walk all over her. She handles her various mishaps with a grace and positive attitude that made me love her even more.
As a parent, one of the things I love about this book is that both Megan and Jared have parents that are involved and concerned. The book does what so many YA books fail to do--models a healthy and realistic home life.
The mythological aspects of this story made it that much more fun. Louie is so evil, but it makes for a hilarious story. I listened to the story, and the narrator did an excellent job and made the story that much more fun. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series when it comes out on audio!

Cute, humorous and fun story. Interesting concept. Good family friendly story.
You can listen to this story with the whole family and not have to worry about inappropriate content. Perfect for a road trip with the kids.
What would you do if you made a leprechaun mad and he stole your luck. What if he had plans to steal the luck from your whole family.
Meghan never gives up, she may have moments of doubt but she keeps going. With the help of her friends she is determined to find a way to fix the problem.
Putting a GPS on a leprechaun, cute
Amy Hillburn did a good job with the narration. She narrates the story with excitement and enthusiasm. The narration was a bit to fast at times, but it fit with the story. She sounded too young and squeaky for me. The MC is suppose to be 16 in the story she sounds like she's 12. I did get used to her voice over the coarse of the story, just not my favorite.

Always looking for a great post apocalyptic roadtrip!
I have to give this one 3.75 overall. It did take me a little while to get through this story, but am I glad I eventually did. I think I originally expected something entirely differet than I got. I found the story to be witty and extremely hilarious. There is a knock at the door and from then on there was fun loving humor mixed with a little teenage drama. Reading about the main character and her terrible luck brought my own luck into perspective. The majority of the characters I found to be really likable. I thought the bond between the main character and her best friend to be refreshing and on point with teenage girls. I also really liked the little twins and all the mischief they caused. I kept picturing my younger sister when we were younger, but imagine there being double, yikes! Although I do enjoy and read many YA stories this one was refreshing because for the most part and the majority of the story it was clean. Something that was entirely different was the positive and influential relationship that the parents had with the children throughout the story. I found myself relating my life back to the main character when I bumped my head or went to the fridge and found no milk left lol. I thought the narration was a little fast paced at first. However when I began relating it to the characters I found it to be more and more realistic as the story went on. The sassiness and tone that the narrator gives to our teenage and younger characters is well balanced with the older parents. It really brought the story to life, as good narration always does. This one had something that made it into something special. It also had some cheese that added to that enjoyable factor. Great job to the author and narrator.

I loved listening to this audiobook very much and it kept my kids and I engaged throughout the story. The narration is clear and on point as it is being told from the POV of the teen heroine.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
Cute but Quick story!! I couldn't tell the characters apart sometimes & the narrator sounded like she was a really REALLY young girl! there were a few things that drove me crazy....but all those were just personal preference on stuff! The way certain words were pronounced or the pitchy sounds! All that is my personal preference!
The book was a fun listen. Five hours and 48 minutes flew by on this road trip. The first two chapters were background information but after that the story was great. The story really moved along after that. Leprechauns stealing your luck was a different take. The characters were interesting. The narration was good, but for some reason this was not my favorite narrator. The sequels might be interesting too.

I enjoyed this book and would feel comfortable sharing it with young adults from pre-teens on up.
Meghan is a great character who earns her accolades and accomplishments through hard work and a little bit of luck. But losing that luck means calamities galore for her as she races to try and get her luck back from a rogue leprechaun.
I very much enjoyed the story and the hours flew by as I listened.
If you need something for car listening with a family this is a good choice. Some of the character's decisions could lead to a powerful conversation on the role of luck as well as how to handle difficult times when parents don't 100% understand.
The narrator was not my favorite but not intolerable.
I would recommend this book for summer reading or road trip listening.
I'll probably pick up the sequels!
