An 11-year-old boy living in Memphis in 1959 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 knows he'll be forced to communicate with the different customers – something he fears but feels compelled to face.

I enjoyed this cross between To Kill a Mockingbird and The Help.

Excellent book about a boy who overcomes stuttering to take over a paper route for a friend for one month. I enjoyed the relationship he built with a customer who encouraged him and shared the importance and love of reading. I did not appreciate the side story about the negro junk man. I thought it took away from the story of the boy, not added to it.
