Long before they became famous writers, Truman Capote (In Cold Blood) and Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird) were childhood friends in Monroeville, Alabama. This fictionalized account of their time together opens at the beginning of the Great Depression, when Tru is seven and Nelle is six. They love playing pirates, but they like playing Sherlock and Watson–style detectives even more. It’s their pursuit of a case of drugstore theft that lands the daring duo in real trouble. Humor and heartache intermingle in this lively look at two budding writers in the 1930s South.

About the Author
Author G. NeriG. Neri, an ALA Notable author, spent most of his life in Manhattan Beach, Santa Cruz, and Venice, California, where he was always happiest in the ocean (especially if there were good waves). He now lives with his wife and daughter on the Gulf Coast of Florida, where the water is warm and the sand white, but where there is a noticeable lack of wave action. To compensate, he surfs the web and can usually be found at www.gneri.com.
