Muscle Man McGinty has finally done the unthinkable. He's bragged that he can beat the ENTIRE block in a game of kickball. On Ramble Street, tough talk about kickball cannot be ignored. For Tamara Ann Simpson, however, this is great news. Now she ll finally be able to prove to everyone what a wormy little liar Muscle Man really is. It's the summer of 1969, and the world is getting ready to watch a man named Neil Armstrong make history by taking the first step on the moon. But change happens a bit more slowly on Ramble Street, and it ll take one giant leap for Tamara to understand the likes of Muscle Man McGinty. Nan Marino may be a debut author, but she's obviously a born storyteller. You will immediately feel at home with her characters, you ll ache right along with them, and you won t be able to leave their stories behind. Patricia Reilly Giff.
