When a traumatic experience in grade school opens the eyes of Aaron Thomas to his life as someone who stutters, he finds himself on two distinct journeys. One is an imaginative quest to battle his inner doubts and fears and to uncover the reason behind his existence as Stutter Boy. The other is an adventure navigating through elementary and high school facing the real challenges-and also enjoying certain triumphs-of living with stuttering. Throughout Aaron's childhood and teenage years, both journeys run parallel to each and lead him to discover his true identity and purpose, changing his life forever.
Stutter Boy takes readers inside the mind of someone who stutters and shows that we are at our best when we share with others our personal testimonies of trials and triumphs, as one person's impediment can be another person's gift.

As a person with a mild stutter, this book really resonated with me because it really personified the struggles and triumphs of a person trying to find their place and purpose in this world while working with a stutter. I am 34 years old and just now coming to peace my speech impediment. God is opening up a platform for me to be bold and use my voice for the betterment of His young students He has placed in my care. And I’m not letting fear hold me back…especially after reading ‘Stutter Boy’. A great story, with a stimulating fantasy parallel, that will keep rooting for Aaron all the way through. Even if you don’t stutter or know no one who does, we all had (or have) that ‘thing’ that we didn’t like about ourselves and that we needed to be set free from its debilitating grasps. This book challenges you to not let anything hold you back from God’s purpose for your life.
