Pennies by Megan Maloney

by sandraseamans

I’m still undecided about this story.  There was something in the writing that kept pulling me in and kept me reading to the end though the story isn’t my usual fare.  “Pennies” is an apocalypse story but it’s also the story of a young girl who has to learn to kill and butcher humans for food and money to support her mistress.  It’s a story about doing what you have to in order to survive.  You can read the story here
