A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Teenager Lia is used to dealing with falling in love, arguing with her family and shopping! In fact, her Mum has just kicked her out of the house when her lottery numbers come up. Suddenly, Lia is £8 million pounds richer. Her account of what money can – and can’t buy – is hilarious. With money, teen life looks very different in this highly entertaining but also thought-provoking novel written in a convincing teen voice.
Lia's Guide to Winning the Lottery by Keren David
Money can't buy you love. But it can buy many other very nice things. Lia's mum is a nag, her sister's a pain and she's getting nowhere in pursuit of the potentially paranormal Raf. Then she wins GBP8 million in the lottery, and suddenly everything is different. But will Lia's fortune create more problems than it solves? Everyone dreams of winning the lottery - but what's it really like? Find out in this hilarious story by Keren David, whose acclaimed debut novel, When I Was Joe, was Highly Commended for the Booktrust Teenage Prize.
