Lottery : The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Perry L. Crandall Paperback
Perry L. Crandall knows what it's like to be an outsider. With an IQ of 76, he's an easy mark. Before his grandmother died, she armed Perry well with what he'd need to know: the importance of words and writing things down, and how to play the lottery.
Most importantly, she taught him whom to trust - a crucial lesson for Perry when he wins the multimillion-dollar jackpot.
As his family descends, moving in on his fortune, his fate and his few true friends, he has a lesson for them: never ever underestimate Perry L.

Review by SimoneA
I really liked this book about a 'slow' guy winning the lottery. Perry is a loveable character, who I really rooted for the whole book. I was just a bit disappointed in the end, because it felt a bit too neatly (though tragically) wrapped up.
