Abstract:

A beautifully rendered novel about trust and loyalty. Raised by his grandmother after his parents abandoned him, Perry Crandall has always felt unwanted. With an IQ of 76, Perry's mental challenges make him an east mark, but his grandmother has taught him invaluable lessons, including how to judge whom he can trust. When Gran dies, 32-year-old Perry sticks close to his two close friends and continues to live by Gran's rules. But one of her lessons--to buy a weekly lottery ticket--will change his life forever. When he wins 12 million dollars in the Washington State lottery, Perry's family swoops back into his life and attempts to gain control of his fortune. As Perry copes with his fair-weather relatives he discovers the deep reserve of his own abilities. When a mentally challenged young man wins the lottery he must defend his abilities against his treacherous relatives who attempt to steal his fortune.
