The Lovereading4Kids comment

Charlotte’s diary is funny, warm hearted and sometimes frighteningly honest! Like all other teens, her life revolves around friends and family while her dreams involve wishing something amazing would happen. Something amazing does happen when her mother wins £3.7 million on the lottery. Now so many of the things that Charlotte had wished for are possible. But, will money bring happiness?

Penelope Bush goes beyond clichés and creates quirky, truly believable characters with complicated lives.

Synopsis

The Diary of a Lottery Winner's Daughter by Penelope Bush

Does money have to change everything? Charlotte and her family are determined that winning £3.7 million on the lottery won’t change them. But they haven’t counted on how everyone around them will react.

Charlotte’s best friend is acting strangely, and someone’s spreading cruel rumours at school. Can Charlotte use the money to change things for the better?

About the Author

Penelope Bush

Penelope Bush trained and worked as a tapestry weaver, but always knew that one day she would write.

She lives in West Sussex with her husband and son and elderly cat. She hides away in an old caravan to do her writing, where the only distraction is the occasional pheasant wandering past. Now and again, the family reclaim the caravan and it is towed down the coast to Dorset, where many happy hours are spent looking for fossils.
