Muscle Man McGinty can certainly tell some whoppers, but this time he's done the unthinkable. He bragged he can beat the entire block in a game of kickball! On Ramble Street, tough talk about kickball cannot be ignored. For Tamara Ann Simpson, however, this is great news. Now she'll finally be able to prove to everyone what a wormy little runt Muscle Man really is. Of course things would be a lot easier if her best friend Kebsie Grobser were here to help her...

It's the summer of 1969 and the world is getting ready to watch a man named Neil Armstrong make history by taking the first step on the moon. But change happens a bit more slowly on Ramble Street, and it'll take one giant leap for Tamara to understand the likes of Muscle Man McGinty. Download and start listening now!

    " Great child-accessible portrayal of the era: from Vietnam to gender roles, the hippy movement and moon landing. Add to that a great story of friendship and keeping an open mind and you've got a book that has it all!.....One harsh moment: realizing my childhood is now "historical" fiction. >sigh< "

    " Another good read with the girls. It was a bitter-sweet story that provoked good discussion about life and friends. Set in a place and time when I was growing up, it reminded me of fun stories from my youth. Why don't kids play kick ball anymore? "

    " A debut novel that feels a bit like one. There are many good things about the book--a great opening line, for one. And the author can write well about emotion (anger, loneliness, grief). But something is missing. Maybe what's lacking initially are the reasons WHY the main characters happen to be feeling/acting the way that they do. These reasons are revealed later in the book, but by that time I think the child reader may be somewhat perplexed. I may need to give this one another read. "
