Summary:

Maddie’s not impulsive. She’s all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment —

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie’s life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she’s talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun… until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now, Maddie isn’t sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn’t seem aware of Maddie’s big news. And, for some reason, she doesn’t want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?

With tons of humor and heart, Kasie West delivers a million-dollar tale of winning, losing, and falling in love.

Thoughts:

Look, guys. Kasie West is an instant-buy for me…easily. Her books are always adorable and this isn’t any different.

I was worried going into this that it was going to be exactly like Jennifer E Smith’s Windfall, but they were different enough for me. Still both about teens winning the lottery, but different.

I will say that I didn’t like Maddie, but I think I didn’t like her because she was frustrating. Then again, I guess she was acting like anyone else who won the lottery would act, so I don’t judge this very harshly.

But…Seth. Seth is precious and just the type of male lead I like to see in a Kasie West book!

Overall, if you’re looking for a quick, fun contemporary book, then look no further!

Huge thanks to Scholastic for the review copy that was sent to me!

Why I’m excited:

Kasie West quickly became on insta-buy last year with her most recent releases, PS I Like You and By Your Side. I devoured both books though, to be honest, I still haven’t gone back and read her older books- I plan to soon though!

This book sounds adorable and right in line with her other books, so I can’t wait. It doesn’t release until July 25, but I’m definitely ready for it as soon as I can get my hands on a copy!
