ABOUT THE BOOK
If you'd like to read the first chapter of The Ticket, go HERE.
Tray Dunaway desperately want's to e popular at her school. But grandma's hand-sewn outfit's aren't going to cut it. Especially, since everyone at school make fun of her boney structure that defined greatly by those clothes. She needs the more expensive clothes, that give her a total different look. A look that complements her, that doesn't give her a washed out look.
Just when it seems nothing in her life is getting any better, her father gets an amazing surprise. Due to a generous friend giving him a lottery ticket, he finds it to be a winning ticket. Oh, what a joyful day in the Dunaway household. The most excited Dunaway of all would most definitely be Tray, because her luck has just changed. Or so she thought.
When her father's friend, Pee Wee, demands the ticket to be given back to him. But when, Tray's father refuses, the Dunaway's have a whole new set of bad luck, especially since Pee Wee plans to cause major problems for them all.
The Ticket is a wonderful book about the complication's of a teen in the seventies. The author has an amazing way with words. Each character had a compelling personality. I hope to read many more of her books.
