The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

Back Cover: Eighteen-year-old Indigo Skye feels like she has it all- a waitress job she loves, an adorable refrigerator-delivery-guy boyfriend, and a home life that's slightly crazed but rich in love. Until a mysterious man at the restaurant leaves her a 2.5-million dollar tip, and her life as she knows it is transformed. At first it's amazing: a hot new car, an enormous flat-screen TV, and presents for everyone she cares about. Indigo laughs off the warnings that money changes people, because she knows it won't happen to her. Until the day she looks around and realizes everything important is slipping away, and no amount of money can buy it all back... So this was my favorite book from her so far from the other two that I read. I like how it has a good message, even though you always hear how money isn't important and it can change you, it's hard to remember that when you;re young and wanting to be important or have nice things, thinking it'll help you out. Indigo knew it at the beginning, but her little trip changed her until she realized that even though she needed a break from things, those were the things that made her who she was, so she figured out what to do with that money and made a good plan! This was a great book. Even though i know it took me a while to read! Wow, haven't taken me that long to read a book in a long time, but I like it. No need to rush! And today is Christmas, so hope everyone had a good one! :]
