Glue Fingers


by Matt Christopher

Billy Joe was a fine football player.  His brother told him he could catch a pass just as if he had glue on his fingers.  But Billy Joe wouldn’t play on any team.  He knew he was good but he also was afraid that the other boys would make fun of him because he stuttered.  Should a stutter prevent a boy from enjoying a game he loves to play?  Billy Joe must face this question in this enjoyable story for middle readers.
