This romantic story of hope, chance, and change from the author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is one JENNY HAN says is filled with all of her "favorite things," MORGAN MATSON calls “something wonderful” and STEPHANIE PERKINS says “is rich with the intensity of real love.”
Alice has never believed in luck, but that doesn’t stop her from rooting for love. After pining for her best friend Teddy for years, she jokingly gifts him a lottery ticket—attached to a note professing her love—on his birthday. Then, the unthinkable happens: he actually wins.
At first, it seems like the luckiest thing on earth. But as Teddy gets swept up by his $140 million windfall and fame and fortune come between them, Alice is forced to consider whether her stroke of good fortune might have been anything but.
She bought a winning lottery ticket. He collected the cash. Will they realize that true love’s the real prize?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Though its central characters are in their late teens, Jennifer E. Smith’s Windfall isn't your average coming-of-age story. When sweet orphan Alice gives her friend (and crush) Teddy a lottery ticket for his 18th birthday, she has no way of knowing that both their lives will be changed forever. Smith subverts the traditional rags-to-riches structure and weaves themes of friendship, family, and grief against the backdrop of a sweet, slow-burning romance. It’s an entirely charming homage to the twinkling magic of first loves and the devastation of teen heartbreak.
