When they were younger, Tru and Nelle were best friends, sharing adventures and solving mysteries in Monroeville, Alabama. But then Tru moved to New York City to live his mother and their friendship slowly faded away. Life in the big city wasn't as fun as Tru had hoped it would be. In fact, he ran away, and now he's back and hoping he and Nelle can be friends again.
Unfortunately, thing's aren't so great in Munroeville, either. Maybe he should have run away to somewhere else.
But Christmas is just around the corner, and there's nothing like the holidays to bring everyone back together.
Based on true events, Tru & Nelle: A Christmas Tale is the continuing story of one of the greatest literary friendships of the 20th century.
“This sequel stands on its own. The writing is gorgeous—not one false stroke. Neri's uneasy peer into a piece of Americana squeezes dribs of hope from precious blood. Totally brilliant. Totally one to watch for in 2017. Bravo!” - Rita Williams-Garcia, 3-time Coretta Scott King Award-Winner and Newbery honoree for One Crazy Summer
