Lucky Girl


That’s how many dollars 17-year-old Fortuna Jane Belleweather just won in the lotto jackpot. It’s also about how many reasons she has for not coming forward to claim her prize, since she’s a minor and her hoarder mother will get the money if she reveals her win before she turns eighteen.

And the last thing Jane’s mom needs is millions of dollars to buy more stuff. Especially since she’s buried her grief over the death of her husband by collecting every photo mug, sentimental t-shirt, and any other personalized items ever donated to all the thrift stores in Southern Wisconsin.

Jane’s had it with strangers’ faces staring at her throughout her house; she’s had it with trying to get over her ex-boyfriend, Holden, and, she’s had it with her small town. All she wants is to get her mom some help and go work on a whale watching boat in Maui. And this lotto money could be her ticket to that dream.

But it’s hard to keep $58 million secret for long in the tiny Wisconsin town where Jane lives. As the weeks pass, the town’s residents turn against each other and Jane scrambles to keep her secret and find someone to help her cash the ticket. Heists, betrayals, secrets, and unexpected twists await Jane, the luckiest girl in town as she figures out what to do with so much and how to be enough for herself.
