This was a really fun read about America today. It touched on a lot of contemporary issues, without being too preachy. The story is about a small town, where the factory has closed and most everyone is out of work. The town is threatened with one last loss, that of their paper--soon they will not even be able to get the local (though several towns over) paper delivered. One young boy, who was supposed to be the next paper deliverer, takes it upon himself to do something about this. The whole thing is clever and enjoyable. Good for boys or girls, 3-5 grades.
