Tru & Nelle - Greg Neri

Coretta Scott King Honor author G. Neri has spun a Southern tale about Truman Capote and Harper Lee’s childhood friendship in Depression-era Alabama. Tru & Nelle (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $16.99) are eccentric in their own ways, but are drawn to each other by their shared love of a good story. Both children become enamored with Sherlock Holmes mysteries and strive to find their own mystery in their small town. The concluding author’s note provides a brief but enlightening biography of Tru and Nelle’s lifelong relationship. Neri’s story is a charming and entertaining tale that also gives a glimpse into the lives of two beloved American authors. Ages 9-12.
