Lottery by Patricia Wood


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!
