Blurbs

From the author of the New York Times best seller Dear Martin - which Angie Thomas, the best-selling 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 best-selling 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.

thoughts


[Note]: It's good to be back here to write my review. I miss sharing my thoughts though I need to tell you something - I will share my review once I have my laptop in my hands, however, for now, my sister is using my laptop until she finishes her study which is only next month. For now, I will update my review on my Instagram but today is exceptional because she is home (YAY!). I guess that's all and now, let's get back to my thoughts.

I have heard many great things about Nic Stone but I haven’t gotten around to pick her book yet. So, when I received Jackpot from Pansing, I literally screaming excitedly (I mean, not really screaming if I did, my mum might going to nag at me for the whole day :p). Reading the blurbs from the Goodreads makes me even more excited. From the blurbs itself, I know Jackpot will leave a wonderful impression on me and it did! I really REALLY love Jackpot written by Nic Stone.

Rico, seventeen years old teenage girl. Her life routine is school - work -babysit her brother - school - work. One day, during the day when she is at her workplace, she has sold a Jackpot winning lottery ticket and no one has yet to come forward to claim the big winning money prize so, she decided to track down the winner but she needs someone to help her to trace this person. The person who comes to her mind is Zan, Rico's classmate. Together they embark on the journey to find that person and the lottery tickets also friendship, love, and life.

Honestly, Jackpot is not only about finding the person who owns the lottery tickets and has yet to come forward to cash it nor about a perfect romance. It really has more than that. A journey that Rico finds a cute, amazing friendship from a person, not even in million years she has ever thought about it. 

Overall, I am in love with every bit of this story. I am intentionally pull down my reading speed just so, I could inhale every word of this book. Nic Stone is really an amazing writer. I enjoy her writing thus I am sure I need to get her other books. Very soon.

Anyway, Jackpot is a wonderful heartfelt story. This will stay in my heart and mind forever. Be sure, to get your hands on this book - Jackpot by Nic Stone. Just one question, what would you do, if you receive more than a million-dollar in your hands?
