Publisher's Summary

Peewee idolizes Jake, a big brother whose dreams of auto mechanic glory are fueled by the hard road coming to link their Indiana town and futures with the 20th century. And motoring down the road comes Irene Ridpath, a young librarian with plans to astonish them all and turn Peewee's life upside down.

This novel, with its quirky characters, folksy setting, classic cars, and hilariously larger-than-life moments, is vintage Richard Peck, an offbeat, deliciously wicked comedy that is also unexpectedly moving.

Critic Reviews

"As always, Peck writes with humor and affection about times past, elders, and growing up strong." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

 "Another gem from Peck. "(School Library Journal

"Peck's one-liners, colorful physical comedy, and country dialect, prominent in most of his recent novels, are great as usual." (Booklist

So enjoyable

Once again, listening to a story by Richard Peck is pure pleasure. His characters are so real, you just love them. There is something special about the way he can give you a sense of place and time. Indiana in the early 1900s, dirt roads, early autos, old farm houses, townspeople who were quirky and real, all these brought this story to life. If you read this, Richard Peck, please accept my thanks.
