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, including a housewife who drinks too much and a retired merchant marine who seems to know just about everything.
The paper route poses challenges, but it's a run-in with the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, that stirs up real trouble - and puts the boy's life, as well as that of his family's devoted housekeeper, in danger.

Great book my favorite!
Paper boy is my favorite book I am a 9 year old boy a d my name is Owen White and I read this book with my Mom I do not think there were any parts I disliked in the book. I think it's a good book from 9 to 10 and up it made me cry it made me laugh it made me happy but I highly recommend it 9 and up for adults to. This book also has positive remodels and positive messages it should take you a month to read. 😀😬😍😅😡🤔😭 those are all of the emotions that you feel read paper boy!
