Critical Reception

Rob Buyea, author of Because of Mr. Terupt and Mr. Terupt Falls Again states Paperboy is "An unforgettable boy and his unforgettable story. I loved it."[2] The story is "Beautifully written by a first-time author/retired newspaper man who stutters, Vince Vawter knows much about what he writes." - The Reading Countess [3] One parent on Common sense Media states "He learns many life lessons during his temporary job as a paperboy (set in the south, during the 60s), and we cheer for him as he stands up for someone he loves, despite extreme peril. Well written, compelling, and plenty of fresh, fascinating characters." [4]
