9780735207387: Tru and Nelle

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.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7—Middle grade readers—even those not yet familiar with the names Truman Capote or Harper Lee—will be delighted with this romp through 1930s Monroeville, AL. Neri has pulled real events from the lives of Tru and Nelle and has woven them into a fictional work that takes readers through the pair's first meeting, their efforts in solving a small-town mystery, and their face-to-face encounter with the Ku Klux Klan. Tru's parents leave him with distant cousins when he is seven years old. It is then that he meets a young Nelle, who lives next door. Both children have difficulty fitting in with their peers and become fast friends. They both have a keen sense of drama and a need to find adventure, even in their sleepy little town. They soon find themselves in one predicament after another, caught up in a local mystery that lands them in some real trouble. This story is heartwarming, funny, and beautifully crafted; readers will be sucked in from the very first chapter. VERDICT A charming addition to fiction collections, especially where readers enjoy historical fiction with a large dose of mystery, adventure, and heart.—Elizabeth Kahn, Patrick F. Taylor Science & Technology Academy, Jefferson, LA
