Jimmy knows he’s different from the other teenagers in Piney Grove, Georgia. He’s what people call “slow,” which means he doesn’t always understand what he sees and hears. But Jimmy sees and hears a lot—even the occasional angel. And Jimmy remembers it all with uncanny accuracy, which is why his lawyer father asks him to testify in a trial. Jimmy’s testimony saves the man from jail but has far-reaching consequences for himself and the people he loves. Peopled with a cast of Southern folk at once familiar and unexpected, Jimmy is an extraordinary tale about growing up in the midst of real struggle. Like Mark Twain and Harper Lee, Robert Whitlow uses an innocent’s limited viewpoint to illuminate complex human realities—and to touch the heart. From the first encounter with Jimmy to that last bittersweet goodbye, Jimmy will enthrall and delight.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janelle | 7/25/2009

    " I enjoyed this book on the mentally challenged however it was definitely written by a man because I thought there was way too much football for me. But the story is sweet and tragic. Do read it and just skip the football parts like I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bevt | 4/2/2009

    " This is a very down to earth story about a boy with a learning disability, and his faith in God. The lesson I learnt is how our faith should be like that of a child - simple and true! An easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 3/26/2009

    " I enjoyed this book to a point. It was quaint, about a mentally slow kid in a small town. But the ending was so horrible. If I had know, I never would have picked it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 2/17/2009

    " A wonderful bonus book. I'd grabbed this for a road trip with Eddie, trying to find something we'd both enjoy. We didn't get to it during the trip, but I eagerly 'listened' my way through the tale of this strong young man. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerri | 10/29/2008

    " Robert Whitlow has been compared to John Grisham....I wouldn't know....I've never read John Grisham. Anyway....this book is my favorite book of all times. By the time I finished this book, I felt like Jimmy was a special friend to me. I love this book!!! "
