Look Out For … A Penny for Your Thoughts by Robert Ford and Matt Hayward

A Penny For Your ThoughtsA Penny for Your Thoughts is Ford and Hayward’s first collaboration and sounds like a book you’re not going to want to miss.” 

Right out of prison, Joe Openshaw settles back at home with his father. He’s trying to pick up the pieces of his life, letting go of his old habits, like the habits that made him an addict and landed him in prison in the first place.

While hiking along Lowback Trail, he discovers one of the town’s oldest secrets. A jar of pennies. But this isn’t an ordinary jar of pennies. Taped to each coin is a scrap of paper. On the paper, is a wish, handwritten by a child.

Then the wishes start to come true. Simple things. Harmless things.

Joe begins to realizes they aren’t really wishes. They’re exchanges, and the bill is coming due.

‘Nothing is free in life.
Sooner or later, you always 
pay.’
