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. . . . Download and start listening now!

    " I'm giving this book 5 stars because it was a very enjoyable read (despite the sick feeling in my stomach for the second half while money is ruining our protagonist). However (view spoiler)[her use of the 2.5 million dollars that lands in her lap isn't as brilliant as it seems to at first glance. She ends up using the windfall to solve problems in the lives of her closest family and friends, but does the money really solve the problems? Some might, but others are less likely. Her friend who has fallen on hard times and has to sell her fancy car probably enjoys getting it back and fixed up, but how will she feel about the car in a few months when she still needs cash and is paying fancy-car insurance? The bipolar poet probably enjoys her laptop at first, but I know from firsthand experience that giving a laptop to a bipolar author doesn't solve the real problem. In fact, all of these gifts seem to invalidate the supposed moral of the story --- that money won't solve your problems. (hide spoiler)] That snark aside, the book itself was beautifully written and the characters really sucked me in. It was fun to read about an 18-year-old who has no ambitions beyond working as a waitress in a diner where a band of regulars are united against the world. I'm just used to good YA like this taking a more thoughtful approach to moral ambiguities than the author did. "

    " This might be the first Deb Caletti book without a beagle in it. But, I liked the beagles. They were my favorite characters sometimes.... Is that bad? I really liked Severin, but he deserves better than that girl, whose name I conveniently forgot. Severin is a really odd name; Indigo and Bex are not. Bex is also a girl in the Gallagher Girls books. I really don't think that Vespa guy needed a name; I was perfectly content to call him Vespa guy the whole book. Pssht. If I got money like that, I'd spend it on books, clothes, and other stuff. Was the Jordan guy the drummer from Ram? Whatever that is? I assume it's a band in the book... Indigo is so giving, it makes me very happy. Like a proud mother. I think waitressing would be a fun job; but when I grow up I want to be an author. "
