Perry is a developmentally disabled young man who lives with his grandmother. Despite the fact that his immediate family want nothing to do with him, Perry lives a happy, good life. He has his Gram, a good job, and a few friends. Then his whole life changes. Gram dies and Perry wins the lottery.
I can’t say enough good things about this book! From the moment I started reading, it had that special feel – you know, the kind of book that makes you feel good and you don’t ever want to put it down. It’s full of humor and sadness and life; and you just can’t wait to find out what will happen next.
It’s not a literary stand-out or some deep meaning novel – unless you want to quantify “love” and “life goes on” as deep meaning. But it’s one of the books that will forever be one of my favorites. I highly recommend it!
