Summary, etc.:
"When Rico sells a jackpot-winning lotto ticket, she thinks maybe her luck will finally change, but only if she and her popular and wildly rich classmate, Zan can find the ticket holder who hasn't claimed the prize"-- Provided by publisher.
Rico, a high school senior and afternoon-shift cashier at the Gas 'n' Go, then races home to take care of her younger brother. When Rico sells a jackpot-winning lotto ticket, she thinks maybe her luck will finally change, but the ticket holder hasn't claimed the prize. With some assistance from her popular and wildly rich classmate Zan, Rico sets out to find the winner-- and find a lot of hidden resentments, shared struggles, and maybe even friendship. -- adapted from jacket

    Seventeen-year-old Rico Danger (pronounced DON-gur) helps her single mother pay rent and raise nine-year-old Jax, which leaves no time for making friends or having dreams. Then, while working at a gas station register, she sells a lotto ticket to a cute old lady, who—after no one claims the $106 million prize—Rico is sure has the winner. She turns to millionaire teen heartthrob Zan to help her find the woman, but when he takes a more-than-friendly interest in Rico, she must figure out how she can possibly fit into his upper-class world. Stone (Odd One Out, 2018) delivers a heartfelt, humorous teen romance fraught with the tension between financial privilege and the lack thereof. While presenting a shrewd depiction of the resulting power dynamics, the stakes feel surprisingly low, and the romance is somewhat humdrum. Despite puzzling chapter intervals written from the perspective of omniscient objects (e.g., a saltshaker, Zan's bedsheets), there's something about Stone's storytelling—and Rico's narration—that is entirely engaging, making this an ultimately hard-to-put-down, enjoyable read.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Stone's debut, Dear Martin (2017), launched an award-winning, best-selling career that shows no sign of slowing down, and she'll be touring the nation with her latest. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
