OMG guys you have to read this this is an AMAZING book! I read this at least 10 times and it's still wonderful!
Lottery is about a young man named Perry who has been given away to his "grandmother" who accepts him and loves him. After his "grandmother" dies, and he wins the lottery, everyone in his family wants him back, wants the money he has. Thank you dad for suggesting the book to me! :D
"Perry Crandall has been raised by his grandmother, who has always told him to trust his instincts, even if, with an IQ of 76, others may try to tell him what to do. After her death, his family swindles him out of the house she left him, and when he wins the lottery, they come calling again. His friends are also behaving differently, and Perry isn't sure what to do. A likable fellow, 32-year-old Perry narrates the story himself, sharing his Gram's wise words and his own interpretations of the situations he finds himself in. Fans of the naive young narrator of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time may enjoy reading Perry's story too."

I found this story of a man with an IQ of 76 who wins the lottery chiched and sentimental. At over 300 pages, the messages about trust and loyalty could have been communicated more effectively in a shorter story.
This is a lovely book, one of my all time favourites.
Loved this "feel-good" story of a mentally-challenged young man who wins the WA state lottery, then outsmarts his greedy family.
Loved this book! The main character was fabulous and Patricia Wood did a great job in writing the book from his honest and uncomplicated perspective. It was a real feel-good kind of book but not without antagonists and an ending that kept me guessing right up to the last page.
Fabulous, feel good story. You will love Perry!
Has a similar feeling to "The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime".
Per's family members seem a little over the top but I suppose money hungry relatives might be this way.
