Review

The Ticket takes a compelling look at a young teenage girl who believes her life is going to change for the better. The story offers up riveting drama. One would be hard-pressed not to root for the likable protagonist and hope that her story eventually ends with a happy ending. There are some authentic life lessons and talking points to be had here. All in all, this is an enjoyable debut by Jeter. --RT Book Reviews

Complex characters ... Jeter s coming-of-age novel considers the problems that might follow a sudden windfall. --Publishers Weekly

Product Description

"Jeter's novel considers the problems that might follow a sudden windfall."~ Publishers Weekly

"One would be hard-pressed not to root for the likable protagonist and hope that her story ends with a happy ending." ~ Romantic Times Book Reviews


Tray Dunaway, an ordinary teenager from a poor Southern family, longs to become part of the popular clique at school. Her mother, Evelyn, lies in bed most days with her bipolar tendency toward extreme highs or desperate lows. Meanwhile, Tray’s grandmother Ginny, still grieving over the loss of her husband, would love to move out and find a place of her own. Maybe even a bit of romance to replace the loss she feels. But given the sorry state of the family’s finances that’s not possible.

Then the Dunaways’ luck changes. Or so it seems.

Tray’s father drives a down-and-out friend of the family, Pee Wee Johnson, to Hazard, Illinois, so Johnson can buy lottery tickets. As a gesture of thanks, Johnson gives a ticket to Tray’s father. And what do you know? The Dunaways’ are suddenly rich.

When Johnson demands his cut of the winnings, Tray’s dad refuses. As Evelyn’s illness spirals toward madness, Johnson threatens the family. Now, what seems like a stroke of good fortune becomes a dangerous game of life and death for Tray Dunaway and her family.

The Ticket is a Selah Awards Finalist
