Copper Penny was the strongest most brave 11 year old!

This is a fabulous book. Knowing the author and where she lives made this a curiously fun book for me. I recognized some of Marcy’s descriptions of places as familiar to our town but where in the world did this story come out of the imagination of the woman I know? I can’t wait to listen to the next chapter in Copper’s life!

Wonderful Wonderful Book

Omg Where and How does one begin tell how much this book will impact a reader? It's one of those that rips your heart and stomps on it but yet you gotta tell others they must read this book Pennies from Burger Heaven. This book has gave me a whole new outlook on Poor City areas and the Homeless. Copper grabs and plucks your heartstrings as does her colorful friends you meet along the way. Although the book does end bittersweet it is well worth one's time to read this poignant book for it will forever stay in a readers heart and mind. I really am at a loss of words to describe how this book touched my heart in a most profound way
