Jimmy Harris has a lot to learn about girls. Then again, what sixth grade boy doesn't?
As the sixth grade begins, Jimmy promptly finds himself in love with not one, but two girls. What's a boy to do? Luckily, he has football to distract him, and as the big game approaches, Jimmy must make a very big decision, perhaps the biggest in his young life.
Jimmy and the Monroe Mustangs is a coming-of-age, young adult novel that features one very special sixth-grade boy who loves football and girls...but not necessarily in that order.

I write for pleasure. My fiction are under the name of Summer Lee. I write Bible studies under my married name of Verna Hargrove.
J R was a sixth grade teacher. His children's stories are typical of how a young boy thinks. This is a picture of the real life a boy longs for. School, sports and girls makes it a fun read. Also check out Kurt and Captain Annie.
This was a delightful audio book, very easy to pick up and listen. It wasn't long at all and I finished in one listen. I would recommend to kids of all ages, boys and girls alike. Narrator did an excellent job and it was fun to follow along with Jimmy in his adventures.
I feel all audio versions of books are better than print versions. Audio brings out the correct pronunciations and complete emotions in the story that many of us are not gifted to do. I also like to kick back & listen to a great story the same way I would a good friend.
I loved the quality life & happiness Jimmy has in his home life. Jimmy is a smart, well-rounded, well brought up boy in the 6th grade - very level headed most of the time.
I liked the soothing sound of the narrator's voice. He spoke clearly for me to understand and did great using many voices thus making the story believable.
The best part I liked was when Jimmy was smart enough to set Jake up to get caught stealing. I also really liked how Jimmy stood up for his friends, specially the girls!
This was a really good read! Perfect for young boys and girls alike. It was a good length for kids at that age too. I would guess this would be a great book for kids from ages 8 to maybe young adult. I know some adults that would enjoy this book too. Listening to this story took me back to my school days a lot.
