Come Sing, Jimmy Jo

Come Sing, Jimmy Jo Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by Newbery, National Book Award, and Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal winner Katherine Paterson

The Johnsons are becoming country music stars. They're on TV and the radio--and it's all because of James. His voice and his guitar playing bring the songs to life, and make the audiences beg for more. Most kids would love it. Not James. He's had to change his name to "Jimmy Jo," dress in clothes he hates, and turn into someone else. Will he ever be able to cope with the fame?

Synopsis:

Newbery Medal winner Katherine Paterson tells the story of Jimmy Jo, and 11-year-old country music singer. When Jimmy Jo's talent brings fame to his family, he suddenly becomes a target for fans--and for a man who insists he's Jimmy Jo's real father. "Paterson's talent for storytelling truly shines".--School Library Journal, starred review.
