This Newbery Honor winner is perfect for fans of To Kill a Mockingbird, The KingÃ¢ÂÂs 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 stutteringÃ¢ÂÂnot even his own name. So when he takes over his best friendÃ¢ÂÂs paper route for the month of July, heÃ¢ÂÂs not exactly looking forward to interacting with the customers. But itÃ¢ÂÂs the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, who stirs up real trouble in Little ManÃ¢ÂÂs life.
