3.5 stars

I’m sure most of us have asked ourselves that question. Spent those millions in our heads as we went to sleep dreaming of hitting it big-time. (If I wasn’t so cheap that I never buy tickets..that’s beside the point.)

This story is about that big win really happening. To an eighteen year old boy. It’s Teddy’s birthday and his closest friends Leo and Alice are headed to his birthday party. Alice has been in secret love with Teddy for awhile now…so she buys a card and writes down how she feels. She feels that she needs something to go with it and buys a lottery ticket. Once at the party Teddy opens that card and presently loses it under his fridge. Yep, Teddy is pretty clueless.

Fast forward to the next morning. They realize that ticket was a winning ticket.

One hundred and forty million plus dollars.

Teddy and Alice both have had some hard knocks in life..so you totally are on board with something good happening to these characters.
But then money does change people, no matter how they think it will not.

This was a really cute book. The characters were all like-able..almost to the point where it was over the top.

I mean..dang they are kids. OF course Teddy was going to act a fool with that much money. I’m a whole lot older than he is and I would act a fool. Books for everyone! And Sephora would totally be bought and put in my basement.

I hate when youngun’s try to be more mature than I am. That cost this book a star.
