It was a one-in-a-million chance. A bag crammed with cash comes tumbling out of the air and lands right at Damian's feet. Suddenly the Cunningham brothers are rich. Very rich. They can buy anything they want. There's just one problem -- they have only seventeen days to spend all the money before it becomes worthless. And the crooks who stole the cash in the first place are closing in -- fast.

A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling debut novel that is, quite simply, unforgettable.

      This book is about two kids receive a bag of money from nowhere, and they only have a 2 weeks to spend them all before the money loses its value. I chose this book because I did not know what will happen to two boys if they got a million dollars to spend, and it is very interesting for me to read. The main character in this book were Damian and Anthony. Damian was Anthony's little brother, and Damian believed in saints a lot. Damian was talking about saints all the time. Anthony was Damian’s big brother, and he liked fashion things, such as toys and shoes. The major problem in the book was people were asking them to give out money, and there was a group of robbers coming for the money. My favorite character in this book was Anthony. Anthony was very mature, and he knew how to spend and handle the money. Unlike Anthony, Damian wanted to help poor people, but he used the wrong way. My favorite part of the story was when Damian and Anthony went to school and everyone were asking them to give them money in exchange of their toys. My least favorite part of the story was when Damian started talking about saints, and it just took forever for him to finish that without someone else in the book started a new topic. I recommended this book for people that likes to see how will people reacts in different situations, and guessing what will happen next in the story.
