Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
A gypsy reads Hannah’s palm and says she will come in to a lot of money. But beware. Money has unpredictable powers Fortune-telling, that’s all just a bit of fun, isn’t it? But then Hannah’s family does win the lottery. Six million dollars. Did you hear that? Six Million Dollars!!!!!! Life is going to be great from now on. The Guest family can have anything they want. Gavin can buy a drumkit and eat pizzas every night. Billy can have enough jellybeans to fill his entire bedroom. And Hannah? Hannah could go to Australia with her best friend, Ursula, if Ursula would only talk to her. The thing is, ever since she heard about the lottery money, Ursula has turned downright mena. And that’s not all.
After a newspaper story about the win, Hannah has been getting crank phone calls, her mother is receiving hundreds of begging letters, and a man from Gran’s past is paying her attention that Hannah finds suspicious. Aren’t all millionaires happy? Hannah’s not so sure. But someone else definitely thinks so. That someone is trying to work out a way to make the Guests hand over their money. And Hannah has an idea of who it might be.
