Copyboy

by Vince Vawter
Illustrated by Alessia Trunfio

In the sequel to the Newbery Honor-winning novel Paperboy, Victor Vollmer sets off to fulfill a final request of Mr. Spiro, the aging neighbor who became his friend and mentor. Now a few years older and working as a newspaper copyboy, Victor plans to spread Mr. Spiro’s ashes at the mouth of the Mississippi River as the former merchant marine wished. But the journey will not be a simple one. Victor will confront a strange and threatening world, and when his abilities and confidence get put to the test, he’ll lean on a fascinating girl named Philomene for help. Together they’ll venture toward the place where river meets sea, and they’ll race to evade Hurricane Betsy as it bears down.

Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

"STARRED REVIEW! Victor's first-person voice—enhanced by the teen's love of language—is brilliantly authentic and heartfelt, especially with his ever challenging stutter. . . .Even the dead man comes fully to life, joining a remarkable cast of meticulously nuanced characters. . . .A lyrical and immersive journey." - Kirkus Reviews
