Luck for Me
by Eugene Thomas
Charles “Lucky” Dumas Jr. is a 13 year old boy trying to navigate the unforgiving streets of Newark, New Jersey. Being pulled in 3 directions: his mom, his dad in prison and best friend Malik, his life is anything but uneventful and oft times dangerous. In the end, Lucky for Me asks a question we should all seek to answer: What would the world look like if we genuinely loved all children?
