I enjoyed this cross between To Kill a Mockingbird and The Help.

Excellent book about a boy who overcomes stuttering to take over a paper route for a friend for one month. I enjoyed the relationship he built with a customer who encouraged him and shared the importance and love of reading. I did not appreciate the side story about the negro junk man. I thought it took away from the story of the boy, not added to it.
