They say Lightning never strikes twice. Doesn't it? Nate and his friend Gen find out. This book talks about unlucky Nate who gets struck by lightning. This causes seeming miracles. Will he remain loyal to his best friend gen or not? The book explores friendship, loyalty, miracles, and various values without appearing to "preach." A wonderful book for tweens or even younger children as a read-aloud.
