Title: Lucky in Love
Author: Kasie West
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Publication Date: July 25, 2017
Summary (from Goodreads): In this new contemporary from YA star Kasie West, a girl who wins the lottery learns that money can cause more problems than it solves, especially when love comes into the picture.
Maddie doesn’t believe in luck. She’s all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment —
In a flash, Maddie’s life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she’s talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun… until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now, Maddie isn’t sure who she can trust.
Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn’t seem aware of Maddie’s big news. And, for some reason, she doesn’t want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?
With tons of humor and heart, Kasie West delivers a million-dollar tale of winning, losing, and falling in love.
I am a new Kasie West fan. I read my first Kasie West novel last summer, P.S. I Like You, and I loved it so much that I have this author on my auto-buy list. This new contemporary has me squealing with excitement! The concept is so much fun and the whole part about working at a zoo sounds really intriguing. I know that I will be reading this one as soon as I can get my hands on it!
