Listeners will find winning humor in this audiobook as narrator and author Nic Stone provides a flawless, upbeat performance. She gives voice to Rico and Zan--teenagers on a mission to find an unclaimed winning lottery ticket that could help Rico's struggling family. Stone taps into Rico's perseverance and strength as she tries to keep her family financially afloat. To track down the winning ticket, she reluctantly ropes in Zan, whose breezy laid-back tone reflects his privileged upbringing--opposites quickly attract! Listeners get the bonus of hearing the flirtatious back-and-forth between the teens, including Zan's capricious way of mispronouncing Rico's surname. Stone also brings a delightfully over-the-top performance to the inanimate objects that act as a Greek chorus. J.E.C.
