I just finished reading Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris. While the picture on the cover doesn’t really match the storyline, the story was both heartbreaking and inspiring. The main characters work at newspapers in the early 1930’s in a time when people were desperate for money and a way to care for their children. After coming across two boys on a porch with a “Children for Sale” sign in front of them, Ellis Reed decides to write an article exposing this desperation. What transpires through the book are examples of family and love, but also what can happen when you make bad choices out of desperation and the inspiration from doing what it takes to correct them.
This book comes out on August 28, 2018 and I’d definitely put it on your Fall reading list! I received this advance copy from Netgalley and Sourcebooks Landmark and my review is an honest opinion.
