Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The sequel to the Newbery Honor-winning novel Paperboy and a Fall 2018 Junior Library Guild selection. Victor Vollmer isn't a paperboy anymore. He's a copyboy now, but his duties at the newspaper get interrupted by a last request from Mr. Spiro, the old man who became Victor's mentor and helped him take on his stutter in the beloved novel Paperboy, a Newbery Honor Book. Victor takes off on a journey that sends him hundreds of miles from home toward the teeth of a gathering storm. Confronted by an unfamiliar and threatening world, he meets a girl who is strong, smart, and bold like no one he's known before, and together they venture to the place where river meets sea. When they wind up racing to evade a hurricane, Victor finds out what the fates have in store for him.

Horn Book Review

Now seventeen, Victor Vollmer (from Paperboy) works as a newspaper copyboy. After the death of his former mentor, Mr. Spiro, Victor embarks on a journey to scatter his ashes at the mouth of the Mississippi. What begins as a personal quest to find the courage to speak up abruptly changes in tone and theme as Victor faces dangerous drug smugglers and a powerful hurricane. (c) Copyright 2019.
