Tuesdays with Wooton
Every Tuesday, Wooton gives the Hamptons' mail to a boy who meets him out front. But Wooton suddenly discovers that the boy isn't the Hamptons' son. Who is the stranger, and what will it take for him to 'open up'?
Wooton Bassett is very confused one day when he realizes that a boy pretending to be Max Hampton is meeting him every Tuesday outside of the Hampton’s house. Wooton and Connie eventually work out that the boy is pretending to be Max so that he can have Max's issue of PowerBoy.
The boy (who turns out to be Grady McKay) is very mysterious. He's cranky part of the time, very standoffish, and seems to have something against church people. Wooton makes a deal with Grady that he will bring him his own copy of PowerBoy if he will stop stealing other people's mail in order to get them. Wooton sees this agreement as a way to keep Grady out of trouble and an opportunity to prove to Grady that not all church people are bad news.
Eventually, Wooton finds out that Grady once had a bad experience with Seth Young, who brought him to church only as a way to earn extra Sunday School points. Seth never talked to him again, and even refused to show him where the bus would stop to take him home after church.
Wooton takes Grady's anger as a challenge. He decides to show Grady what true friendship is like...every Tuesday.

QuotesMs. Drummond: If you find them, tell them I'll make a German chocolate cake and bring it over. You know, it's the mom's favorite; reminds her of her childhood when she lived in North-Eastern Wisconsin.
Wooton Bassett: Some of my best memories are from being a Boy Scout and doing all those fun "-ing" things—boating, camping, rafting, hiking, falling, hurting, bleeding, and yelling for help. It was the most fun I've ever had!
Wooton Bassett: Hey, did you see that grape juice is on sale? It's suppose to improve your memory.
Mrs. Hampton: Yeah, you know, I think I've heard that somewhere before.
Wooton Bassett: Yeah, well, see, if you drank your grape juice you'd remember exactly where!
Connie Kendall: So he's pretending to be a boy scout?
Wooton Bassett: Yes. And I'm pretty sure that's a federal offense, too!
