Paperboy is a 2013 young adult novel by author Vince Vawter. The novel was a Newbery Medal Honor Book in 2014. The author Vince Vawter was inspired to write the novel Paperboy because it is an autobiographical novel, almost a memoir, about a speech impediment he has had all of his life. As a child he suffered with it and as an adult it has been a challenge that he welcomes and finds that it gives him a certain amount of inner strength.

A page dedicated to wargaming with paper miniatures and terrain models. I know the Full dress plumes wouldn’t be worn on the battlefield, but remember these are Victorian toy soldiers. You would have them in your collection and when duty calls they come out to fight!

Paperboy tells the story as only an afternoon paperboy in rural America in the sixties can. Thousands of readers identified with the unique characters of Colby while reading The Bridge. They grew to love Tommy and the band of boys, were entertained by their childish pranks, and touched by their generosity. In Paperboy, change is coming to Colby. The shoe factory has sold and a hat factory is taking its place. A factory manager has been named and he's definitely not from Colby. There's an influx of interesting newcomers. The high school principal is also new to Colby. He must deal with teenage pregnancy, the snooping high school office secretary, and the Colby Curls rumor mill. He, too, has a mysterious past and uses it to his advantage. The pregnant teen and her auto-mechanic single mother aren't Colby natives either. Rumors about both abound. The mother has a past which touches the present, and eventually involves the entire town. Tommy and Booger, while delivering the Colby Telegraph, discover that Colby's patriarch, Mr. Koch, has a heroic but classified history. While raking leaves for Mrs. Whitener, they learn the origin of her accent and how she got to Colby. It's not what most people think. Jupiter Storm, the town's primary purveyor of gossip, whose opinion always exceeds his knowledge, is perpetually annoying. But Tommy and Booger learn that Jupiter is a decorated World War II veteran. And when a threatening stranger appears on the scene, the entire town learns of Jupiter's unique but redeeming skill. How will Colby be different, and how will it be the same?

I had previously read The Bridge and liked it so read Paperboy also. I liked both of these books because they reminded me so much of the small town in which I was raised. A lot of similarities. And I was a summertime paperboy so I can relate to that experience. It's kind of slow moving, but that's okay. Kind of a break from the hustle bustle world. I would recommend that one read The Bridge first as they are sequential. Just an easy relaxing read.

As was the case with the author's first book, The Bridge, this story transported me back to my pre-teen years in a small town in rural America. The quirky small town characters, the "codgers" sitting on the courthouse bench, new people coming to town, athletes & cheerleaders & everyone else, minor acts of vandalism and high spirits, piano lessons, occasional glimpses of violence and darkness that seemed shockingly out of place when they occurred. And knowing that everyone in town knew who you were and was likely to report any real or perceived misdeeds to your mama. The Paperboy tells a story, but more importantly, it tells a place and a time that only remains in memory.
Bragis
Following the band of boys through life in Southeast Missouri is a wonderful followup to The Bridge. The picture on the cover sold me on this series--this place still exists! Growing up in this area simply makes this book and it's stories even more precious. The cafeteria scene was so incredibly real. Hoping there is another story following the band of boys.

Since I grew up in rural Virginia at about the time of these storie, I enjoyed them a lot.

Great story at beginning; unfortunately got awsy from paperboy experiences and became murder thriller.

Ever pick up a book and found yourself captured? You think about the characters, wonder what they'll do next, and sneak away for a few more pages. Anyone who was ever a kid will appreciate this book - the lessons are poignant and the laughs are real. This one really sneaks up on you.
