Hailey Bailey has never been noticed, recognized or remembered. After a transient childhood spent in the cab of a Mack truck, Hailey is now 43 years old, overweight and stuck in a go-nowhere job with Jesus, her ex-husband who filed for divorce in an inner office envelope.

When a rare impulse strikes, Hailey buys a Daily Lottery ticket thinking she will never win. But when she does win and continues to win every time she buys a ticket, hard-nosed news reporter George Sprinkle is on the case, threatening to expose Hailey of pulling off the biggest lottery scam in state history. But it's not the money Hailey is drawn to-it's the fact that miraculously, people are nice to her every time she wins.

But the once-famous investigative reporter needs a big story to save his journalistic reputation and deflated ego and nothing will stop him from publishing his story. Throw in a Chinese restaurant, one night with a Kenny Rogers impersonator and a few trips through the all-you-can-eat fried bar, and you've got the twist-turning tale of Hailey Bailey, the woman you won't notice but will never forget.
