    Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: she taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of 31. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with.

    Overall

    Although I have been listening to Audible books for a few years, this is the first time I've felt truly compelled to write a review. The book was poignant, touching, and believable, absolutely holding my interest. But what really stood out for me about this book was the narration. This is the only book I've "listened to" (rather than read) where I felt that the narration added so much value to experiencing this novel, that I am sure I would not have enjoyed reading the book nearly as much as listening to Paul Michael read this book. His ability to give a distinct and consistent voice, especially to the characters of Keith and "Gram" added so much to my enjoyment and sense of these characters. This was particularly effective because Perry learned so much from these two characters in particular and what they taught him stayed resident in his mind contributing significantly to his growth and development.......therefore, the narrator's ability to consistently articulate a distinct voice for these characters, both when they spoke but also when Perry reflected on their words in his thoughts, added tremendously to the effectiveness and impact of this book. This isa a very enjoyable and uplifting story. HIGHLY recommended audio book
