Twelve-year-old Enly Wu Lewis is determined to go to band camp and follow in the footsteps of his musician father, who died years ago.
But his mom, a single parent working two jobs, is saving every penny for his older brother's college tuition. So Enly sets out to earn the money for camp on his own, by busking with an obscure instrument he can only kind of play. When someone drops a winning scratch-off lottery ticket into his tip box, Enly thinks it's the answer to his problems—but he'll have to overcome teenage thieves and his own family if he wants to achieve his dreams.
"A fast-paced, quirky caper with an authentic middle-grade voice."—Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author
"Encourages readers who need to be seen as well as those who need to see . . . I tip my hat to Liu—and put a tip in the hat for Enly!"—Rebecca Petruck, author of Boy Bites Bug and Steering Toward Normal
