Jackpot

by Stone, Nic (Author)

ISBN: 9781984829627

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Dear Martin-which Angie Thomas, the bestselling 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 bestselling 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.
