Come Sing, Jimmy Joby Katherine Paterson
The Johnsons are becoming country music stars. They're on TV and the radio - and it's all because of James. His voice and his guitar playing bring the songs to life, and make the audiences beg for more. Most kids would love it. Not James. He's had to change his name to "Jimmy Jo," dress in clothes he hates, and turn into someone else. All he wants is to sing the songs he loves. Will he ever be able to cope with fame?
* "Paterson's talent for storytelling truly shines in this book . . . . It is a gift to its audience, a special gift that should not be passed by."
