Indigo Skye is a senior in high school. She has delayed entry so works as a breakfast waitress in a deli. Her sprightly personality makes a difference in a customer's life and he gives her a $2.5 million tip.
How she and the people around her deal with this windfall makes for a tear-inducing read.
I love Deb Caletti's writing. It's rich in cool metaphors and similes and her descriptions are to die for. I wish I had her talent!
I'm definitely going to recommend this book to all my students.
