Lucky Caller

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?


“This lovely book brims with complicated family dynamics, unexpected friendships, and important lessons on learning from mistakes. Mills truly excels at creating vivid characters that will tear at readers’ heartstrings [...] A stunning read filled with wit and wisdom.”
