I grew up in the country but still remember my cousins who lived in town having a paper route. Will can’t wait until he turns twelve. He only has to wait one day for that to happen. He will then be able to take over his brother’s route. This route has been handed down generation after generation and Wil is excited to carry on the tradition. Then Wil receives the call that tells him the paper route is to be cancelled in his town. Wil of Steele is his nickname and it fits. Wil sets the wheels in motion that will solve this an several other problems in his small town. This was a great book. I held off to read it almost last as I really didn’t think I would like it. I was so wrong. The characters and setting were so developed that I wanted to live in his small town and be one of his friends. Corbett did an excellent job of pulling the reader in and keeping them entertained throughout the story. It brought back a piece of Americana long gone
