SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

The story The Paperboy follows a young paperboy and his dog as they wake up in the morning and go on their route. The boy and his dog wake up even when it is cold and hard to get out of bed. They eat breakfast together, pack the paperboy’s bag full of newspapers, and go out on their route. They both know the route by heart.
