A great wild west fantasy, about the strength of women and the importance of female friendships. Thrilling, gritty, and atmospheric. ( )

The Good Luck Girls is a feminist western-est debut novel by Charlotte Nicole Davis. In Arketta, girls are sold to Welcome Houses, branded on their necks by favors, and forced into a life they never would have chosen.
After Clementine accidentally kills a man on her Lucky Night, her sister Aster knows they much escape. With Clementine's friends Mallow and Tansy and head girl Violet following along, the girls make their grand escape. Pursed by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, the girls trek across the Scab in search for assistance from a bedtime story called Lady Ghost.
As soon as I read the first few pages of this book, I wanted to read it all. Davis does a wonderful job at world building. Similar, I felt, to the likes of Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone or Justina Ireland’s Dread Nation. I was able to feel myself there with the girls on their journey to freedom.
The story has strong women with heartbreaking backgrounds who form a family and all have beautifully written character arcs and growth. (Violet’s was my favorite) Davis’ writing style has become one of my favorites.
There is both fantasy and western elements sprinkled throughout the book. There are raveners who can mess with your mind and feelings, and spirits - both calm and vengeful ones - that haunt the land giving the fantasy feel. There’s also robbing, stealing, and “The Law” as there is in westerns.
The girls are constantly on the move so the book is always filled with action - clear up to the very end. It’s face pace, but it’s never fast enough that I felt like I was left in the dust.
I’m not a big fantasy reader, but this book is one I recommend checking out. ( )

This book’s got a great premise/storyline and the writing was good, but somehow a wild escape from forced prostitution, being pursued by an evil man, escaping raveners that can cause pain with a thought, performing feats of daring... it lacked adrenaline or suspense. I can’t figure out why though. Several scenes should have been heart pounding, but weren’t. Also, it took a long time for me to care about the characters - although I’ve read a few books lately with that feeling, so that may just be me. I did like the ending and now I sort of want to know what happens in the next book. Would definitely read this author again though!! I think book 2 will be on my to read list... ( )

I'll say straight up: I'm sick to death of the trope of old west bordellos. Therefore, I started this YA book with trepidation. I was soon surprised by the book's thoughtful take on the horrors of human trafficking, all in an original weird west fantasy setting.

The "Good Luck Girls" aren't that lucky at all. They are girls sold into sexual slavery at 'welcome houses' that pepper the wilderness. All of this is referenced in delicate ways, but you know what is going on. When Clementine's debut night goes horribly wrong, she flees town along with her sister and other girls. They become bandits out of need to survive, but they ultimately have one goal: freedom, which means finding their way to the mythical Lady Ghost who can remove their magical brands.

This book handles difficult subjects like rape and abuse with great sensitivity. All too often now, I come across that kind of thing in books and stop reading. I'm sick of how some authors use it as a crutch for female character development. This novel, though, shows strength and resilience in its cast of women. It feels real, fantastical as the setting is, and that's all the more important since it is for a young adult audience. ( )

RGG: Fantasy set in the Old West. Difficult topics of racism, sex slavery (not overly explicity but clear), other topical issues. Yet a fun adventure read. Reading Interest: 14-YA.
