Publishers Weekly says:

Platas's second wish fulfillment fantasy chica-lit novel (after Cinderella Lopez) follows the craziness that ensues as Cuban-American Rosie Caballeros humdrum world undergoes an extreme makeover after she wins $600 million in the lottery. Rosie shares her megabucks with her grandmother and her lovable cousin Cheeto, and begins plotting how to best spend her riches, gradually transforming her dumpy self into a smart, curvy J-Lo celebrity sort, pursued by the tabloids—much like heartthrob actor Brad Merritt, who, in a magical twist of fate, becomes her boyfriend. But Rosie's newfound status also attracts envious schemers, ex-boyfriends and the glaring media spotlight. Platas depicts Rosie and crew's gilded ascension with a giddiness that's pure escapist fun.

From Flamingnet Reviews:

"Lucky Chica" blew me away with it's addicting plot and lovable characters. It felt just like I was standing with Rosie as she gawked at her $600 million lottery ticket. It's a little sad in parts, but it all comes together in the end. Berta Platas did an excellent job of keeping me interested and "Lucky Chica" grasped my attention from page 1. This is by far one of the best books I've ever read. The story just puts you in a great mood when you've finished. I would definatly recommend it to young adult readers that enjoy lighthearted fun and a satisfying ending.
