★ 美國紐伯瑞兒童文學榮譽獎
 

一個結巴男孩,在代班送報的那個夏天,學會了比說話更重要的事……
 
11歲的「小男人」投的球是全鎮上最快又最猛的!但他一開口可就不是那麼一回事了……因為他只要一說話就會結巴,連自己的名字都唸不好。當他整個七月必須幫忙好朋友送報時,和陌生人互動就成了艱鉅的挑戰。
 
送報途中會遇到常喝醉酒的婦人、愛看書的商船船員、總是沉默的電視男孩等形形色色的人們,而其中一位拾荒男子,不僅是名惡霸和小偷,更讓他和最好的朋友陷入了生命危險……



*"Reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird." —Booklist, Starred
 

"An unforgettable boy and his unforgettable story. I loved it!" —ROB BUYEA, author of Because of Mr. Terupt and Mr. Terupt Falls Again
 
This Newbery Honor winner is perfect for fans of To Kill a Mockingbird, The King’s 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 stuttering—not even his own name. So when he takes over his best friend’s paper route for the month of July, he’s not exactly looking forward to interacting with the customers. But it’s the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, who stirs up real trouble in Little Man’s life.

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.” —Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation of America

“An engaging and heartfelt presentation that never whitewashes the difficult time and situation as Little Man comes of age.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Vawter portrays a protagonist so true to a disability that one cannot help but empathize with the difficult world of a stutterer.” —School Library Journal
