Description

From the author of the number one New York Times best seller Dear Martin - which Angie Thomas, the best-selling author of The 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, the New York Times best-selling author of Dear Martin and Odd 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 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)

"Funny, captivating, and thoughtful." (The Atlantic)

Commentaires

"Hard-to-put-down, enjoyable read." (Booklist)

"Smart, humorous and hopeful." (Shelf Awareness)

"Stone delivers a thoughtful and polished novel about class, privilege, and relative poverty." (Kirkus Reviews)

"A deftly constructed tale that is equal parts satisfying wish-fulfillment and light-handed lessons learned.... This is a real winner." (SLJ)

"By turns romantic, funny, and surprising, the story explores how class, status, and money - or lack thereof - have the ability to limit or expand life opportunities, the choices we make, and our universal need for love and connection." (The Horn)

GREAT STORY!

Great story. My 13 year old son and I love Nic Stone's work. She's SUPER cool in real life as well. About to purchase another of her audio books to listen to with my son. I love the unexpected commentary from unlikely voices!

Buyer beware!

This one was such a disappointment after Dear Martin, if I had listened to this one first I would never have tried DM thinking it would be just as bad. This book is full of every racial, poverty, rich kid cliche available and goes on and on about them. The main character has the biggest chip on her shoulder, which is the main theme of the book, it gets old fast. The male main character adds some pizazz to the story, but sadly not enough, his part could have been expanded beyond rich kid. The two books are like night and day as far as the writing. I feel this was a rough (very rough) draft of a book that was thrown out to the publisher. The story line is all over the place, easy to 'see' the final result, which I figured out almost immediately. And I won't even start on the 'talking' inanimate objects, oh goodness. I thought maybe this might be aimed at a middle school audience, but there is quite a bit of sexual reference so maybe not? I don't know, but honestly could not wait for it to end, I hardly ever abandon a book before it is done, but almost did with this one. I'm on the fence if I will try another of her books.

Good story.

This is the 2nd book I've listened to by Nic Stone. Storyline was good. The story of Rico's life depicts how some people live today. struggling to make ends meet. The narration could have been better. hard to distinguish who was talking unless the person's name was said. Overall I would listen to it again.
