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

Jesse had taken Pee Wee Johnson (family friend) to Hazard, IL., to by a lottery ticket.
Surprise, against his morals & better judgment Pee Wee gives Jesse 1 of the lottery tickets.
Later Jesse finds out he had the winning number & won the Illinois lottery
Pee Wee later threatens Jesse & wants his cut also.
Gram had passed away & now there was a funeral to attend.
Was there foul play in Gram’s death?
Tray was taken to the police station for interrogation.
Will Pee Wee ever get his fair share?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

This book has that same impact. Debra Coleman Jeter uses conversation, a temperate amount of character POV narration and simple description to load scenes with emotional realism. You care about key people in the story even before the lottery ticket of the title points them at one another in increasingly touching but messy interactions.
This is excellent story telling. It leaves loose ends that have the reader thinking, not just about the characters or heavy questions generated by what they deal with, but about one's own choices, those already made and those awaiting a decision.
I'm in middle age and if this book is "YA," then I guess I have an inner teen because I found this to be an emotionally engaging novel.
