Romance, Young Adult

Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith


What would happen, what would you do if the joke-gift of a lottery ticket that you give to your best friend, the one you have a secret crush on, hits the jackpot? Alice’s life has had a rocky start and now she’s facing some big life decisions like college and what to do about the guy she pines for, when suddenly millions and millions of dollars change everything in her life… again. An interesting premise, but too often the plot falls back on time-worn cliches found in many young-love novels. And the main character’s diffidence and indecisiveness too often comes across as irritating. An entertaining read, nonetheless, in spite of a few flaws.
