About this title

Synopsis:

In an Alabama town in the early 1950s, during the last polio summer, 10-year-old Tabitha Rutland, a tomboy with a passion for Roy Rogers, seeks adventure with her best friend Maudie May. As they meddle with the local bootlegger, row out on the Tennessee River to land the biggest catfish ever, and snoop into the town's darkest secrets, Tab sets out to be a hero -- and comes of age in an unforgettable confrontation with human frailty, racial injustice, and the healing power of love.

From the Back Cover:

In an Alabama town in the early 1950s during the last polio summer before the Salk vaccine, ten-year-old Tabitha "Tab" Rutland is about to have the time of her life. Although movie theaters and pools have been closed to stem the epidemic, Tab, a tomboy with a passion for Roy Rogers, still seeks adventure with her best friend Maudie May, "the lightest brown colored person" she knows. Now as they meddle with the local bootlegger, Mr. Jake, row out on the Tennessee River to land the biggest catfish ever, and snoop into the town's darkest secrets, Tab sets out to be a hero...and comes of age in an unforgettable confrontation with human frailty, racial injustice, and the healing power of love.
