Though taller and perhaps a better athlete than her brother Marcus, Mia Robinson was only allowed to cheer for her sibling at his basketball games until now. The Titans are going coed so Mia tries out and makes the squad. Her dad gives Mia a good luck charm that she believes works as she plays quite well on the court. However, her belief in the magic soon has her missing practice and the coach is ready to bench her even if she is a star. Will Mia learn her lesson that she is the magic through hard work and talent not her father’s gift or will she be benched permanently?

The sequel to THE REAL SLAM DUNK, THE REAL LUCKY CHARM is a whimsical tale starring a wonderful young protagonist who believes the charm has made her a star not talent or hard work. Mia is the center of the solid story line, but gets strong support from her brother, her parents, and her teammates. Older elementary school children will appreciate Charisse K. Richardson’s fine slam dunk tale.
