*"Reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird." --Booklist, Starred

"An unforgettable boy and his unforgettable story. I loved it!" --ROB BUYEA, author of Because of Mr. Terupt and Mr. Terupt Falls Again

This Newbery Honor winner is perfect for fans of To Kill a Mockingbird, The King's Speech, and The Help. A boy who stutters comes of age in the segregated South, during the summer that changes his life.

Little Man throws the meanest fastball in town. But talking is a whole different ball game. He can barely say a word without stuttering--not even his own name. So when he takes over his best friend's paper route for the month of July, he's not exactly looking forward to interacting with the customers. But it's the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, who stirs up real trouble in Little Man's life.

"[Vawter's] characterization of Little Man feels deeply authentic, with . . . his fierce desire to be 'somebody instead of just a kid who couldn't talk right.'" --The Washington Post

*"[A] tense, memorable story." --Publishers Weekly, Starred

"An engaging and heartfelt presentation that never whitewashes the difficult time and situation as Little Man comes of age." --Kirkus Reviews

"Vawter portrays a protagonist so true to a disability that one cannot help but empathize with the difficult world of a stutterer." --School Library Journal

Review:

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 18, 2013:
"[A] tense, memorable story."

Starred Review, Booklist, April 15, 2013:
"The well-crafted characters, the hot Southern summer, and the coming-of-age events are reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird... This paper boy is a fighter and his hope fortifies and satisfies in equal measure."

"An unforgettable boy and his unforgettable story. I loved it."--Rob Buyea, author of Because of Mr. Terupt and Mr. Terupt Falls Again

"Paperboy offers a penetrating look at both the mystery and the daily frustrations of stuttering. People of all ages will appreciate this positive and universal story as I did, but it will be particularly meaningful to anyone who has ever struggled with stuttering."--Jane Fraser, president of The Stuttering Foundation of America

"[A] compelling first-person narrative." --The Washington Post

"A memorable coming-of-age novel." --School Library Journal

"In a compelling climax, he, still stuttering, proudly announces his real name; the moment is as eloquent as his story." --The Horn Book
