Peewee idolizes Jake, a big brother whose dream of auto mechanic glory are fueled by the hard road coming to link their Indiana town and futures with the twentieth 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. Download and start listening now!

    " I absolutely LOVE some Richard Peck, but these last two...I can only muster a three. The story is nice and there is some humor and an overall message, but it just didn't suit me like other books do. That's all. "

    " At first I didn't think I'd like this book because of the tone of the author but it really was outstanding. The time set in the book was educational and very moving. "

    " This is Richard Peck's ode to librarians, librarianship, strong women, and automobiles. A moving combination (pun intended.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marci | 3/2/2011

    " What a hilarious, warm hearted story. I felt it was in the same tradition as the Booth Tarkington "Penrod and Sam" series, which I had read as an adolescent and am still enchanted by. I would recommend this to everyone--but especially adolescent girls. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev | 1/29/2011

    " An entertaining enough book about a 1914 tomboy, her mechanic brother, and the people in their small town. Nothing to write home about, but short, funny and sweet. "
