Set in 1959 Memphis, Paperboy tells the story of Little Man, an 11-year-old boy who struggles with stuttering. When he takes over a paper route, Little Man’s interactions with customers provide a new set of challenges, including neighborhood junkman Ara T, who threatens both Little Man and the family’s housekeeper. "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
