From the author of the #1New York TimesbestsellerDear Martin–which Angie Thomas, the bestselling author ofThe Hate U Give,called “a must read”–comes a pitch-perfect romance that examines class, privilege, and how a stroke of good luck can change an entire life.
Meet Rico: high school senior and afternoon-shift cashier at the Gas ‘n’ Go, who after school and work races home to take care of her younger brother. Every. Single. Day. When Rico sells a jackpot-winning lotto ticket, she thinks maybe her luck will finally change, but only if she–with some assistance from her popular and wildly rich classmate Zan–can find the ticket holder who hasn’t claimed the prize. But what happens when have and have-nots collide? Will this investigative duo unite…or divide?
Nic Stone, theNew York Timesbestselling author ofDear MartinandOdd One Out,creates two unforgettable characters in one hard-hitting story about class, money–both too little and too much–and how you make your own luck in the world.
“[A] funny, captivating, and thoughtful tale for young readers about class privilege, class deprivation, and the politics of luck and love.” –Ibram X. Kendi,The Atlantic
“A delightful, hilarious romance that digs into issues surrounding class. You’ll laugh as much as you sigh while reading this novel about luck, love…and how having a little bit of both is more than enough.” —Paste
