A heart-warming, gorgeous new novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

"Windfall is about all of my favorite things-a girl's first big love, her first big loss, and-her first big luck." -Jenny Han, New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Alice doesn't believe in luck, Alice believes in love. Mostly that she's been in love with her best friend, Teddy, for the last three years. When she buys him a lottery ticket for his birthday and he wins 32 million dollars, they are thrown together with the world at their feet.

Teddy decides that he will spend his money committing random acts of kindness, and who better to go on that adventure with him than Alice? In the process they get to know themselves and each other better than they ever have before, but money can't buy you love . . .
