This funny, addictive teen novel is the answer for those who think winning the lottery will solve all of life's problems. Life's hard for Lia. Her mom is a nag, her sister a pain, and the gorgeous-but-mysterious Raf seems immune to her charms. When Lia wins $8 million in the lottery, suddenly everything is different. But will Lia's millions create more problems than they solve? Resentful girls at school set up a “We Hate Lia” Facebook group . . . with fans in the thousands. Her friend Shazia won’t have anything to do with Lia's fortune, believing gambling to be immoral. The mother of her other best friend, Jack, is threatening to sue Lia. Raf's behavior is getting stranger, and Lia wonders whether there's something to the rumors that he's . . . potentially paranormal. And when her sister, Natasha, goes missing, Lia begins to wonder if a millionaire lifestyle is all it's cracked up to be. Will Lia’s fortune create more problems than it solves? Find out in this hilarious story by Keren David, whose acclaimed debut novel,When I Was Joe, was Highly Commended for the Booktrust Teenage Prize.
