Another great book by Ms. Smith. When Alice buys a lottery ticket for her best friend, Teddy, it changes their lives in more than one way. Teddy never saw what Alice wrote in the card she gave him so he does not know how she really feels. When the ticket makes Teddy the youngest ever to win the lottery, their lives change in more than one way. Like all lottery winners, Teddy buys things he has only dreamed about, a car, extravagant dinners, gives money away, people call asking for money, his gambling dad returns, and things just do not go well. Teddy has ideas of what he wants to do with the rest of the money but with a little help from Alice, and a trip to Stanford, he finally figures it out. Can two best friends get back to normal or some sense of normal before it is too late?

I’ve lost my faith in contemporary books by new authors, since I’ve read so many that have failed. But “Windfall” was perfect. It was just what I wanted to read, about a trio of friends that break and bond after winning a lottery ticket. It’s not exactly exciting or different, but the relationships crafted out between every character made me feel warm, with their authenticity. You can tell the author has put her heart and soul into the phrases, that aren’t full of prose but have a deep meaning to them. The general style gave this book a star quality and the characters were all loveable and stay with you for a long time! Definitely recommend! 4/5
