Big Heart + Big Brain = Funny, Feel Good Fiction

Well, that was the paperas first mistake. Underestimating Wil was the second. With physics, his clueless brother, and a neighbor girl on his side, Wil fights to save his route. Along the way he just might unravel a carnival mystery, expose a con artist, rescue his little town, and become a big hero. Sue Corbettas hilarious dialogue, nonstop action, and one-of-a-kind family story herald a rising star of middle-grade fiction.
