Lucca Smith left the only woman he ever loved upon graduation, running from continuing crisis and a climactic incident that could have sent him to prison. Instead, he was allowed to join the Marines and fight in faraway wars. Still in boot camp, he learns she has married his best friend. What’s a guy like him, the forgotten outsider to think? Although vowing to never return, ten years later he does, for his high school reunion. He is transformed as a now former Marine but also as the sole winner of a billion-dollar lottery, although his name was never in the media. With the class valedictorian in tow, but still very much the outsider, he comes home to face who he was and what his classmates have done with their lives in hopes of deciding who he could become.
