The main character has a low i.q. His family abandoned him to be raised by his grandmother, who worked with him every day so that he had life skills. The story starts once she dies. His family takes all assets, including the house he shared with her, and really screws him.
He makes friends, wins the lottery, improves his favorite local fishing store. He comes up with the idea to hold workshops. It's a huge success. He is in love with the girl who works at the local convenience store. She hooks up with his best friend, who gets her pregnant and then dies. Main character ends up taking care of her and baby, being extremely successful and happy. He says, "That is so cool" often.
