Perry, a happy young man with an IQ of 76, lives a simple life with his Gram, proud of his work in a boating store and friendships with the people in his small circle. Suddenly his Gram dies, and Perry tries to find his way despite family members who have no patience for him, kick him out of his house, take everything of value, and tell him he's on his own.

Perry and Gram always had the habit of buying lottery tickets while shopping so one day, while missing his Gram so much, Perry realizes that he has bought the winning lottery ticket worth $12 million. The story continues with what happens when the people close to him, his family who had washed their hands of him, and the world around him suddenly realize Perry has become incredibly rich.

Perry displays an intellect beyond anyone's expectations when he comes to understand what really matters in the world and that love cannot be replaced by money. He knows who are his true friends and who to watch out for. He has a knack for intuitively understanding business and makes good decisions at his work.

I really enjoyed this book and I know it will remain in my thoughts from time to time in the days and months to come.
