Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often don't
amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform
everything. Her theory proves true the summer she's 14,
when she makes the decision to pick up a penny embedded
in asphalt and consequently ends up stopping a robbery,
getting a job, and meeting someone who changes her
life forever--Miss Shaw. Together they form a friendship
that dares both of them to confront secrets in their
pasts--secrets that threaten to destroy them. Jenny helps
Miss Shaw open up to the community around her, while
Miss Shaw teaches Jenny to meet even life's most painful
challenges with confidence and faith. This unexpected
relationship transforms them both in ways neither
could have anticipated, and the ripple effect that begins
that summer goes on to bring new life to the people
around them, revealing how God works in the smallest
details--even in something as small as THE PENNY.
