An original novella from award-winning children’s author and poet Gary Soto
Jason Rodriguez is a twelve-year-old who never had much luck—until he wins $3,700 in the lottery and becomes an Instant Winner! Jason can’t believe he’s won the lottery and decides he will use the money to get his crazy Uncle Mike out of jail. That’s where the real adventure begins.
“[Soto’s] sensitivity to young people’s concerns and his ability to portray the world as it is perceived by children is nothing less than remarkable.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review, praise for the author
