Penny always knew she had been short changed right from the start.
Her mother decided from an early age that Penny would never amount to much. Already in her late thirties, lonely and unhappy, Penny looks set to fulfil her mother’s prophecy. She wants to change her life but lacks the confidence to do so. She longs for friends and a life that doesn’t consist of wiping runny noses and walking her dog with a neighbor she dislikes. Even taking her dog to a new park nearly results in disaster.
But then she takes control... one small step triggers a series of changes, and she begins to experience the life she has longed for. A Penny's Worth is a fun, fast-moving, wise-cracking tale of self worth. A witty and highly rewarding read.
My View I'll rather say this is a completely inspirational story or self-help book which is represented in a fictional manner. This is a very short and simple story but always implies how to come across your own negativity. It shows how to handle each and every situation around us whether it's may positive or negative. I think this book'll always motivate you and take your moral level up.
The whole story revolves around a women Penny, who approaches to 40 but never able to feel the magic moments of her life. Her mother always tried to hold her on the safe side of her life and tried to decide which path should she follow or which one one she shouldn't or she can't.
But these things never allow Penny to express herself openly rather made her an irritated or annoyed person, who always prefer loneliness. Because she was driving another one's dream not her own.
But finally, how Penny went against the tide, her own family, her mother and yes, from her own lonely,safe or comfort cell to an adventurous life. A place where she can get a chance to prove herself. Because at the end of the day she was worth much more than this.
I must say, everyone should read it because it's not too long. And the book is not so serious type rather some part of it really make you laugh. I think anyone can enjoy it.
A line of this book really touched me "You just have to believe that you will and don’t give up. More importantly, believe in you and what you are trying to achieve, the rest will come in its own time.”
