"After Teddy loses his mother to a car accident, he and his young brother are left with their eccentric Civil War professor father, who is more able to discuss Confederate footwear than his sons' day at school. But Teddy's father plays the lottery with his wife's old numbers, and wins $190 million, immediately transforming their lives forever. For the first time, the family must learn what 'the rich part of life' really is. Creating the perfect balance of humor and pathos, Jim Kokoris takes us on an unforgettable journey through the ups and downs of this revelation of unexpected wealth."--P. [4] of cover.

I loved this book and am always happy to learn of new authors. Kokoris has a special talent for writing in the way that people speak. The story told in the voice and perspective of a 12 year old boy is refreshing and often times hilarious. I will definitely read more books by Jim Kokoris.
