AADL hosts best-selling YA author Nic Stone to discuss her latest title, Jackpot. What would winning the lottery mean to you? Nic Stone provides a close view at this thought through the eyes of teenager Rico in Jackpot. Taking care of her little brother, working every day to help her mother with the bills, and keeping up with her schoolwork is Rico’s life these days, and she is feeling anything but lucky. But can a winning lottery ticket change everything?
Nic Stone is the author of the New York Times bestselling Dear Martin. Her second novel, Odd One Out, was hailed as “essential reading” in a starred review from Booklist. Jackpot, her third novel, is a life-affirming story about the humanity in people, no matter how little or how much is in their bank account. In January 2020, Nic will debut in the middle grade arena with Clean Getaway.
This event is in partnership with Literati Bookstore and includes a signing with books for sale.
