How to Lose Everything: A Mostly True Story by Philipp Mattheis

Release Date: July 23, 2013

 

About the Book

Jonathan, Sam, Schulz, and Eric usually spend their summers skateboarding at the park and dreaming about the time when they’ll finally move out of the suburbs. But in the summer of 1994 the four teenagers find a small fortune hidden inside an abandoned house, and that changes everything. The money was a dream come true, but it couldn’t last. Stress, drugs, and dwindling funds raise the stakes and also raise some serious questions about the future. Eighteen years later, Jonathan returns to that life-changing summer to tally up the cost of that discovery and explain how one broken dream led to a totally renewed sense of purpose.

If I stumbled upon a fortune, I would pay off all my student loans, build my dream house with a stable full of horses, purchase the property I would like for my nonprofit, give some to family, and donate money to my college alma mater.
