Publisher's Summary

Muscle Man McGinty can certainly tell some whoppers, but this time he's done the unthinkable. He bragged he can beat the entire block in a game of kickball! On Ramble Street, tough talk about kickball cannot be ignored. For Tamara Ann Simpson, however, this is great news. Now she'll finally be able to prove to everyone what a wormy little runt Muscle Man really is. Of course things would be a lot easier if her best friend Kebsie Grobser were here to help her...It's the summer of 1969 and the world is getting ready to watch a man named Neil Armstrong make history by taking the first step on the moon. But change happens a bit more slowly on Ramble Street, and it'll take one giant leap for Tamara to understand the likes of Muscle Man McGinty.

I enjoyed this more than my 10 year old

This was a great listen for both young and older alike. I think I liked this more than my 10-year-old daughter because I grew up in the book's time frame and lived within 10 miles of where Tammy lived. The main character was feisty with a soft side. The lesson that the book told was right on without being overbearing. A wonderful family listen.
