With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.
When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.
The members of Nina’s haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she’d hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.
The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina’s family is on the brink of some major upheaval.
Everything feels like it’s spiraling out of control―but maybe control is overrated?
The worst part of finishing an Emma Mills book is that it’s over and it means the next one is so far awayyyyy. This was really sweet and so good and I am always blown away by the tiny (usually musical) Easter eggs connecting the books! I especially loved their make believe game Kingdom- it was so fun and gave so much insight into the sisters’ relationship, and Jamie is just… the best. He’s so sweet and his musical opinions made me giggle. I wish we got a little more background for some characters and more resolution with Nina’s older sister Rose but it was wonderful overall. The romance was A+ and it was TOO perfect to read this book set in Indianapolis while on a flight to Indianapolis!!
