The Cardturner by Louis Sachar

The summer is looking bleak for Alton Richards. His girlfriend has dumped him to go out with his best friend, he has no money and no job. And then his parents insist he drives Uncle Lester to his bridge tournaments four times a week.

Uncle Lester is old, blind and very sick…and very rich. Which is why his parents are desperate for Alton to worm his way into his good books. But they’re in competition with other distant relatives. not expecting much from the outings, Alton soon finds himself getting to know a lot about his uncle, his family’s history,and pretty Toni Castaneda, another contender for Uncle Lester’s inheritance.
