The book has successfully won Newbery Medal in 2007 and also successfully drawn a controversy (some school libraries banned it due to the word “scrotum” in the first page). The book follows the life of a ten years old girl named Lucky. She is about to lose her friends when Brigitte decides to move back to France and will have to live in an orphanage in Los Angeles. She then decides to run away and embarks on an exciting run-away adventure, in which she's hit by a dust storm in the desert.
Despite all the debates and controversy, Susan Patron’s The Higher Power of Lucky is one of the best children’s books. Rick Richter, President and Publisher of the Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Division, stated in an interview that the novel is “wonderful book as a whole” and readers will see beyond the word “scrotum” to “the charm and innocence of its main character Lucky.” Richter added “Susan Patron has written a masterful novel celebrating small town values and we can only hope that her deserved Newbery winner is recognized for the treasure that it truly is."
