Praise

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
