Young Truman Capote thought life in New York City was going to be perfect, but he is downright miserable. When he runs away to Monroeville, Alabama, and the only friend he's ever had, Nelle Harper Lee, things don't go well there, either. Christmas is coming, and Tru's only wish is to be happy, but it'll take a miracle for that to happen. Sometimes, though, the impossible can come true. Based on the real-life friendship of Truman Capote and Harper Lee, G. Neri's gratifying tale for readers 9 to 12 evokes America in the 1930s, and even hints at the inspiration for To Kill a Mockingbird.
