When seventeen-year-old Brandon falls out of a tree onto his head – and survives – his doctor suggests he’s had such luck he should buy a lottery ticket. So Brandon does, and he wins three million dollars – and that’s last happy moment he has for some time. Being suddenly rich brings all kinds of stress and new fake friends and family dissension and the loss of the one friendship that used to count.

Brandon DeWolfe, an 18-year-old lonely misfit just barely getting through school, does what almost everyone else just dreams of: he wins the lottery. Plunged into a world that is completely new to him, and without any real moral compass to follow, Brandon realizes it's a good idea to be careful what you wish for.
