Happy Sock Sunday! I just got this book today and from the looks of it, I think, I’m really going to enjoy this book! As you can see, from the seal on the cover this book is a Newbery Honor Award Winner. So, this book has to be good right?
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.
“Words in the air blow away as soon as you say them, but words on paper last forever”
