On the cold and inhospitable planet of Zyrgon, in a galaxy light years away, X's father wins the state lottery for the 27th time in a row. His 12-year-old daughter knows that he will be severely punished so she decides to buy a spaceship and take the whole family to Earth.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 A family from the future, fleeing a space colony (Dad has done something borderline illegal) is set down in present-day Australia and has problems coping with hire-purchase, TV, school, etc. This is a typical family story, with some flimsy space trappings. The middle child is simply named X, which is going a bit far to show that she feels like a non-entity. Father continues his borderline crooked ways, not the most desirable role model to present to children. After numerous small adventures in adjusting to life on Earth, the family decides on permanent residence. A nice idea, but the execution does not live up to the promise. Li Stark, North Castle Pub .
