Big Heart + Big Brain = Funny, Feel Good Fiction!
Wil?s sidearm throw can land a paper on your porch from twenty yards out. But he doesn?t know if he?ll be able to put his unusual talent to use because the big newspaper company has canceled delivery to Wil?s small town.
Well, that was the paper?s first mistake. Underestimating Wil was the second. With physics, his clueless brother, and a neighbor girl on his side, Wil fights to save his route. Along the way he just might unravel a carnival mystery, expose a con artist, rescue his little town, and become a big hero. Sue Corbett?s hilarious dialogue, nonstop action, and one-of-a-kind family story herald a rising star of middle-grade fiction.
