Fortunes of Indigo Skye

Have you ever thought about what you would do with a million dollars? How about 2.5 million dollars? Personally, I would delight in the predicament of receiving such a windfall. I can see it already: huge shopping sprees and long exotic holidays where I can laze by a pool and sip refreshing cocktails all day long! Ah, that’s the life!

In Deb Caletti’s new novel, ‘The Fortunes of Indigo Skye’, this is the very situation faced by eighteen-year old waitress Indigo after a customer leaves her a whooping 2.5 million dollar tip. As could be expected, receiving such a large amount of money is life changing for Indigo, however unexpectedly, in ways that are not always for the best. Caletti’s novel explores Indigo’s journey as she struggles to come to terms with her sudden affluence. Relationships with friends and family are tested as Indigo’s perspective of the world and her place in it has been altered immeasurably.

So, is it true that money can’t buy you happiness? Give this novel a read and find out!
