Life of a Newsie
I do not make that much money but it's enough to get me by. Since I do not earn that much money, I usually just wear worn down clothes. I do not live in the lodging house with all the other homeless Newsies. I live with my grandparents in a small apartment. I don't mind living with my grandparents, but they always make me go to school which I hate. Most of the time I will just sneak out of school in the morning to sell the morning papers.
Most kids my age do not have to wake up early and sell newspapers. I have it a little easy because I get to live with my grandparents but the other Newsies are orphans and homeless. It's a pretty tough job because if Pulitzer raises the price, we don't sell any papers and that means we don't make any money. Some days we have a good day and sell tons of papers, but other times we have bad days and don't sell any papers.
