A middle-grade debut: Bingo Summer

FINALLY, BINGO SUMMER IS HERE!

Winning the lottery would make life a whole lot simpler, right. 
At least that’s what thirteen-year-old Summer Haas and her family thought after Summer scratches the instant lottery ticket
 she finds in her birthday card, and the family wins big.

But when Summer, along with her eccentric mother and younger sister, J.C., leave their small southern Illinois town to escape the unwanted attention that the lottery win attracts, Summer’s life changes but not exactly for the better. Will Summer ever find a new best friend like Dana, whom she left behind? Will anyone even want to be her friend when they find out her family gambled their way to riches? BINGO SUMMER is a humorous, coming-of-age story about Summer’s struggle to fit in and be true to herself, two ideals that do not always mesh.

The eBook is available on KINDLE * NOOK 
and KOBO (coming soon!)

    1. So true, Stepheny! That notion is probably why one of my most favorite quotes is - 'Perseverance, the secret of all triumphs,' by Victor Hugo.
