View 1 comment. She works at a convenience store clerk which is how she ends up meeting the woman who bought the winning lottery ticket and also the rich young heir, Zan, who ends up playing willing accomplice to her heist to notify the woman of her good fortune and, perhaps, get a cut of that sweet, sweet cash.

Ultimately, I do think I liked this book-- with reservations-- which I'll list out here. I think a lot of YA and NA try to romanticize being low-income, like you have no cred if you aren't starving.

It's always for a sacrifice or a cause and I hate that, because I think it feeds into the mistaken belief that people without money have done something to deserve that.

Rico's struggles to provide with her family and their sacrifices really hit hard. I liked that a lot. Rico and her younger brother are biracial and so, actually, is Zan.

There's a lot of interracial families in here, and lots of discussions about culture and not a whole lot of bigotry, while somehow also managing to talk about privilege and discrimination.

I think it's a very positive rep, for the most part, and I really liked that a lot. I think a lot of teens probably will, too.

Jessica was a great and supportive character, and so was her boyfriend, Ness. The two of them as a couple were very cozy and I liked their interludes.

I like the idea of kids going on adventures to win money. Adventure stories were really big in the 80s and 90s and then kind of tapered off.

My generation grew up with those types of stories so it was nostalgic to see a similar one, but wearing grown-up clothes. There's all these micro-chapters narrated from the point of view of inanimate objects money, houses, pieces of paper, etc.

I didn't like that. It was a bit too surreal and precious, and kept yanking me out of the story. Whatever the author was going for, it didn't quite work and I wasn't a fan.

Same problem with the inanimate object interludes-- it felt like it was trying too hard. There were a few moments of genuine humor in here but it felt like Rico had to have a retort for literally everything and eventually it got exhausting and annoying.

Rico was not a very nice character and while I get her struggles, she was really hard to like. I never warmed up to her, especially at the end when she reveals her true colors as to how far she'll go to get the winnings.

I didn't really buy it. I didn't like Rico, so I didn't see what Zan saw in her and why he took all her attitude and meanness.

It wasn't a very positive relationship. Zan had problems too and was too pushy and privileged and sometimes sexist, but he didn't make me recoil the way Rico did with all of her actions.

Not going to say anything else on this because spoilers, but yeah. This wasn't a bad book and ultimately I did end up liking it more than I disliked it, but it won't be topping any of my favorites lists any time soon.

I think people will either love or hate this one, tbh, depending on how they feel about the main character and her "humor. View all 4 comments.

Sep 13, Ms. This book was one of the YA reads that wasn't on my radar at all. I've never read any books by Nic Stone so this was my first. Thank You Netgalley for granting me an arc.

I'd say this was about a 3. Rico is trying to track down this old lady who she b This book was one of the YA reads that wasn't on my radar at all.

Rico is trying to track down this old lady who she believes bought a winning lottery ticket at her gas station in hopes of getting that ticket and claiming the money for herself.

See Rico is like a second mother to her younger brother and she just wants a life where she can provide for him and give him the world. Where they don't have to just barely make rent at the end of the month and do without.

Where the rich kids at school won't bully them. Rico's mom Rico's mother seriously got on my nerves. After her bad decisions she basically puts it all on her daughter to help take care of the family because she's too proud to apply for government assistance.

But also insists on having them live in an area they can't afford under the guise of wanting better schools for her children.

She never gets the dragging she deserves because bad parenting like that should've be excused. There was also a missed opportunity to inform people on the types of services available at little to no cost for single mothers.

Services her family could've desperate used instead of Rico's mother working her to exhaustion. She has colitis but doesn't want to go on medicaid even after Rico calls her out.

She doesn't have a change of mind instead just decides to go waste money on a vacation they can't afford. In another book someone from outside the family would've called her out about her shitty parenting.

Also one thing I found strange is that Zan asks Rico "What are you? Now we black girls know there's a stereotype that if you are a pretty black girl you must be mixed with something.

And it's acknowledged that it's offensive but we still go there anyway. I expected her response to be.

The black girl with the high cheekbones and curly hair is of course mixed. And Rico goes into this whole explanation about her "exotic" background with an Afro Spanish father and biracial mother.

I will say this book's strongest point is the effortless chemistry between Zan and Rico. They are a classic YA rom com duo.

Zan is the rich boy who comes across like a bad boy but it really a cool down to earth dude. Rico seeks him out because he was at that gas station that day and she heard some rumors that he's good with computers.

He doesn't open up much and he's kind of intrigued by her since at school she talks to no one. Once he and Rico form a friendship he really tries to get her to open up and does what he can to make her and her brother's lives a little easier.

Which while cute at times can come across a little white saviorish. I found his family dynamic very interesting. Him picking up Rico every day gave me shades of Not sure how I feel about that ending.

It didn't end the way that I expected. Nov 26, Mary H rated it it was amazing. Haven't read this yet, just combatting an absurd rating from someone else who has certainly not read it.

I think this book made my brain explode a little bit, but in a good way? So much to think about after finishing this one. Jun 17, Briar rated it liked it.

Alright, I'm a total Nic Stone fan girl. I literally did football maneuvers in a ballroom to make sure I got this ARC.

But, this one felt.. The story is told from Rico's POV with side anecdotes from the winning lotto ticket, her little brother's toy soldier, and other inanimate objects in an effort to offset Rico's unreliability.

I wanted a deeper exploration into her partner in crime's thoughts. I also didn't like the constant reminder of how poor she was. It was redundant and often came acr Alright, I'm a total Nic Stone fan girl.

It was redundant and often came across as melodramatic. This coming from someone from a low socioeconomic background Things I did love, Jess as a character was phenomenal and exactly who Rico needed to help her put her life in perspective.

Also, the bathroom scene with Rico and her mom was done to perfection. Sep 12, Kate GirlReading rated it really liked it Shelves: contemporary , poc-rep , young-adult.

She has a way of making you exist in her fictional world and get completely wrapped up her characters. This is book brimming with diversity, the have and have-nots and coming-of-age.

What I got was the compelling character of Rico, working every hour outside of school to help her mum with keeping the eviction notice away, whilst looking after her young brother, Jax.

It was pretty tragic to read as Rico had no kind of normal teenage existence. There was a sense of desperation around Rico that invaded the atmosphere.

Rico embarked on a quest to find a winning lottery ticket and she got up the courage to grab Zan to help her.

He seemed to be her opposite in every way especially in terms of his financial situation. However, the more I got to know Zan, the more I realised that Zan and Rico were similar in many ways.

There were some unexpected twists to this story and some tragedies too that had me on the edge of my seat. I can honestly say this was a great reading experience and that I enjoyed the book from cover to cover.

I love her writing style, it makes for ease of reading. Highly recommended. I did not write a review straight away after I consumed this novel is because I do not know how to put my love for this novel into words.

The thing is, not many romance novels make it up to my favourite list as the genre that dominates the list is Fantasy and the fact that both of these romance novels crawled their way up to the list me I did not write a review straight away after I consumed this novel is because I do not know how to put my love for this novel into words.

The thing is, not many romance novels make it up to my favourite list as the genre that dominates the list is Fantasy and the fact that both of these romance novels crawled their way up to the list means a lot to me.

So, why do I love Jackpot so much? Because of the characters and the romance, of course. The characters are well-written in this novel.

Rico is a rather complex character and her actions are sometimes difficult to understand because they do not make any sense and that is a character flaw which I loved as I am really pleased that we did not get a Mary Sue who presumes that she is right and perfect all the time in this novel.

Zan is a character who I can relate to and I loved all his dialogues with Rico. In addition, he is the reason why the novel is so fun to read because he makes up the most humorous jokes and performs the most feeble-minded actions in the most random and awkward situations and I could not help but laugh at his stupidity.

Moreover, he can be really respectful at times of need and I really liked that about his character. Jessica and Ness are the side-characters that I thought were characters that are discarded in the beginning but build-up slowly towards the end.

You can observe their character growth from the first page to the last page and you will be astounded by how much they have grown as characters in these pages novel.

All these characters deliver this novel near to perfection. If you are wavered by the synopsis of this novel, I urge you to ignore it and go into the book with a clear mind and an open soul.

Although the synopsis is accurate, it is just a sub-plot of what the actual novel is. This novel explores class, interracial characters, wealth and privilege and I noticed that the synopsis does not actually give justice to the glory that this novel deserves.

I cannot stress enough of how magnificent this novel is because of the topics that it has presented in this novel. The plot of the novel is delicately crafted and most of the plotlines string up together nicely.

The pacing of this novel is eloquent and relaxing as it does not have a plenitude of protuberances that will cause the pacing to be treacherous.

However, I thought that the ending was a little bit rushed but I was too emotionally invested in the novel to notice how fast the author was driving me to the ending point of the novel to care and therefore, the ending is what we will talk about next.

The ending of the novel has 2 gigantic plot twists that both made me sob endlessly and stunned me to my core.

Honestly, I did not see any of them coming because I was so blinded by the romance that a veil did not asunder until the very page that the plot twists occur.

In addition, the ending also shows the true colours of both the protagonist and her love interest and that made me love the book even more even though it is so heartbreaking to read about and I cannot stop thinking about it for days and that shows the astonishing characteristics of the novel.

Oh, just so you know, I think this is an amazing Christmas gift to give to a family member or a friend because this novel starts off in December with snow falling and a bed of white covering the green land.

Blog Instagram Twitter Goodreads Dec 08, Camryn rated it really liked it. I really liked all of the characters except the mother, who drove me crazy.

I related to Rico a lot and I also liked all of the conversations between the characters. Also Zan is like one of my favorite YA love interests ever.

Not going to lie. He had problems, but he was obviously very into Rico from the beginning and was so sweet about it.

He also did a lot for her, just providing support. A lot of it made me super touched. I also loved the conversations about privilege and money and obligations throughout.

It was really great in one way, but I feel like we waited so long to find out about something and it was sort of a let down. I found myself excited to come back to over and over.

I wish more people would talk about it. Fun dialogues. I liked how much the two main characters argue. Rico's mother seemed more underdeveloped plot device than character.

I had to look up the Hebrew phrase, which never got referred to again, oddly? Jan 17, Janssen rated it really liked it Shelves: young-adult , This was such a delightful, funny, sweet read.

This book explores class inequality and how it disproportionately affects people of color and specifically, in this case, Black people. This book throws the "money can't buy happiness" saying right back at you because sometimes it can!!

This book explores the way Black teens are affected by class inequality and lack of resources. It unpacks so many important issues in such a short page count and it manages to pack in a lot of growth and devel 4 stars Nic Stone does not, in fact, ever let me down.

It unpacks so many important issues in such a short page count and it manages to pack in a lot of growth and development for its main character in the process.

Jackpot follows a Black girl, Rico, who works at a gas station during her free time from school, so she can help her mom make ends meet.

On Christmas day, her gas station sells the winning lottery ticket, but when the owner of the ticket doesn't show up to reclaim their prize, she decides to go on a scavenger hunt, determined to find them and maybe get a fraction of the winnings for herself.

And to do that, Rico recruits the only other person who was in the store when she sold the ticket, who also happens to be the heir to the local corporation.

I'm gonna try to refrain from making too many puns during this review, but I honestly feel like Nic Stone hit the jackpot with this one.

The main character is incredibly fleshed out and there are so many different sides to her that it's impossible to know when something new is going to be revealed.

Rico feels responsible for keeping her family off the streets because she knows her mom can't do it alone, and she feels responsible for taking care of her brother because her mom works day and night at multiple jobs.

She knows she's not going to college and is instead going to work full time at the gas station because that's what her family needs her to do so they can survive.

She's missing friends, a social life, and time. And she knows that a lot of her problems could be solved with money. Zan is the heir to the toilet paper empire that his father built, but he doesn't really want to be.

But if he doesn't take over at the company after his dad leaves, he risks being disowned by his entire family.

We don't know as much about Zan because he's the love interest in this book, but I appreciated that he had a personality of his own.

Rico and Zan embark on the scavenger hunt together, determined to find the lottery ticket. Over the course of the story, they start to develop feelings for each other which leads to a very nice romance that I really enjoyed.

She's finally allowing time in her life for something other than work and school and her family, and it was interesting to see how that development affected her character.

However, throughout this, she still puts her family first. Again, the plot of this book was what kept me from giving it a full five stars.

The ending did feel a bit rushed, although I did really like the plot twist that came before it. I think there were a lot of things that the author tried to do in the second half of the book that could have been more effective had more time been devoted to it, but I still really appreciated what she was trying to say.

At its core, Jackpot is a book about family, sacrifices, class inequality, and friendship. But it's also just about a girl who's doing her best in a world that makes that harder with every step of the way.

This is an incredibly important, but also an incredibly entertaining book. Nic Stone does it again. Sep 04, Clara The Bookworm of Notre-Dame rated it it was amazing Shelves: out-in , contemporary , young-adult , sent-by-the-author-or-publisher , romance , eating-disorder-rep.

Nic Stone, can you please write me a husband? Because I fell in love with Justyce when I first read Dear Martin and this book came out on my birthday, so it was a sign right?

It's the first romance driven plot I loved in a long, long time. Plot Keywords. Parents Guide. External Sites. User Reviews. User Ratings.

My favorite bits were the parts written in the perspective of different inanimate objects because I feel like they just really gave this that little extra something and honestly y'all this was just so fun and you need to read it!!!

Nov 15, Cristina Monica rated it really liked it Shelves: family , social-issues , publications , romance. I love the concept of this one. Two teenagers, one rich and one poor, are brought together as they try to retrace the steps of an old lady who may have just won herself over a hundred million dollars!

Her family lives above their means, in an apartment they can hardly afford. To save face, maybe? She must help her mom pay bills.

So finding that winning ticket is of outmost importance to Rico. Life can hit anyone, hard. This author has a very unique writing style.

I could feel it as I read this book. Another winner from Nic Stone. BTW, I really like her name. Jun 24, jv poore rated it it was amazing Shelves: donated , heyssel-classroom , own-it , realistic-fiction , young-adult.

Rico is tough and serious, in her determinedly matter-of-fact way. She knows all she will ever need to know about each of her classmates.

Without having an actual conversation, Rico knows what their home lives must be. She can tell what type of people they are.

Rico is so grown, she even knows exactly how each of her peers sees her. Mama is hounding her to pick up extra shifts at the gas station.

The purest person on the planet, her little brother, Jax, seems to stay sick. And she does still need to graduate. But now, his mad-hacker-skills may be exactly what Rico needs.

Something else happened that night-before-Christmas. Rico sold a winning lotto ticket, but the prize has not been claimed.

Rico vividly recalls chatting with the sweet little lady who mentioned being forgetful. She will do everything possible to track this woman down in time to claim the jackpot.

While the sullen Rico is stuck with the inexplicably cheerful Zan, she grows annoyed by his habit of asking the questions that most folks would just mull over, silently.

Replying to his sneaky, probing, seemingly-innocent queries got Rico thinking. More time together meant more self-realization and Rico began to wonder if her earlier assumptions were not entirely accurate.

Maybe, being part of a family that is financially well-off does not necessarily mean having whatever you want.

Perhaps someone can be decked out in all-Nike-attire and still legitimately need food stamps. Maybe money is a blessing.

Or, it could be a curse. Day-to-day life, even when infused with Something Different, is realistic and relatable. The occasional appearance of unexpected and unlikely narrators elevates the entire book in a way that I find intensely delightful.

She works at a convenience store clerk which is how she ends up meeting the woman who bought the winning lottery ticket and also the rich young heir, Zan, who ends up playing willing accomplice to her heist to notify the woman of her good fortune and, perhaps, get a cut of that sweet, sweet cash.

But, this one felt.. The story is told from Rico's POV with side anecdotes from the winning lotto ticket, her little brother's toy soldier, and other inanimate objects in an effort to offset Rico's unreliability.

I wanted a deeper exploration into her partner in crime's thoughts. I also didn't like the constant reminder of how poor she was. It was redundant and often came acr Alright, I'm a total Nic Stone fan girl.

It was redundant and often came across as melodramatic. This coming from someone from a low socioeconomic background Things I did love, Jess as a character was phenomenal and exactly who Rico needed to help her put her life in perspective.

Also, the bathroom scene with Rico and her mom was done to perfection. Sep 12, Kate GirlReading rated it really liked it Shelves: contemporary , poc-rep , young-adult.

She has a way of making you exist in her fictional world and get completely wrapped up her characters. This is book brimming with diversity, the have and have-nots and coming-of-age.

What I got was the compelling character of Rico, working every hour outside of school to help her mum with keeping the eviction notice away, whilst looking after her young brother, Jax.

It was pretty tragic to read as Rico had no kind of normal teenage existence. There was a sense of desperation around Rico that invaded the atmosphere.

Rico embarked on a quest to find a winning lottery ticket and she got up the courage to grab Zan to help her. He seemed to be her opposite in every way especially in terms of his financial situation.

However, the more I got to know Zan, the more I realised that Zan and Rico were similar in many ways.

There were some unexpected twists to this story and some tragedies too that had me on the edge of my seat. I can honestly say this was a great reading experience and that I enjoyed the book from cover to cover.

I love her writing style, it makes for ease of reading. Highly recommended. I did not write a review straight away after I consumed this novel is because I do not know how to put my love for this novel into words.

The thing is, not many romance novels make it up to my favourite list as the genre that dominates the list is Fantasy and the fact that both of these romance novels crawled their way up to the list me I did not write a review straight away after I consumed this novel is because I do not know how to put my love for this novel into words.

The thing is, not many romance novels make it up to my favourite list as the genre that dominates the list is Fantasy and the fact that both of these romance novels crawled their way up to the list means a lot to me.

So, why do I love Jackpot so much? Because of the characters and the romance, of course. The characters are well-written in this novel. Rico is a rather complex character and her actions are sometimes difficult to understand because they do not make any sense and that is a character flaw which I loved as I am really pleased that we did not get a Mary Sue who presumes that she is right and perfect all the time in this novel.

Zan is a character who I can relate to and I loved all his dialogues with Rico. In addition, he is the reason why the novel is so fun to read because he makes up the most humorous jokes and performs the most feeble-minded actions in the most random and awkward situations and I could not help but laugh at his stupidity.

Moreover, he can be really respectful at times of need and I really liked that about his character. Jessica and Ness are the side-characters that I thought were characters that are discarded in the beginning but build-up slowly towards the end.

You can observe their character growth from the first page to the last page and you will be astounded by how much they have grown as characters in these pages novel.

All these characters deliver this novel near to perfection. If you are wavered by the synopsis of this novel, I urge you to ignore it and go into the book with a clear mind and an open soul.

Although the synopsis is accurate, it is just a sub-plot of what the actual novel is. This novel explores class, interracial characters, wealth and privilege and I noticed that the synopsis does not actually give justice to the glory that this novel deserves.

I cannot stress enough of how magnificent this novel is because of the topics that it has presented in this novel. The plot of the novel is delicately crafted and most of the plotlines string up together nicely.

The pacing of this novel is eloquent and relaxing as it does not have a plenitude of protuberances that will cause the pacing to be treacherous.

However, I thought that the ending was a little bit rushed but I was too emotionally invested in the novel to notice how fast the author was driving me to the ending point of the novel to care and therefore, the ending is what we will talk about next.

The ending of the novel has 2 gigantic plot twists that both made me sob endlessly and stunned me to my core. Honestly, I did not see any of them coming because I was so blinded by the romance that a veil did not asunder until the very page that the plot twists occur.

In addition, the ending also shows the true colours of both the protagonist and her love interest and that made me love the book even more even though it is so heartbreaking to read about and I cannot stop thinking about it for days and that shows the astonishing characteristics of the novel.

Oh, just so you know, I think this is an amazing Christmas gift to give to a family member or a friend because this novel starts off in December with snow falling and a bed of white covering the green land.
