Synopsis

Synopsis

Thirteen-year-old Tree Taylor has two goals for the summer of '63:
 
 1. Experience her first real kiss. A kiss delivered by a boy. A boy who is not related to her. A kiss worth writing about. 
2. Become a famous writer. (Or, at least, write an investigative article that will land her the freshman spot on the Blue and Gold staff.)

So when a gunshot is fired right across the street, Tree knows this is the big story she's been waiting for. But the more she goes digging, the more secrets she uncovers, and soon she begins to wonder: When is it important to expose the truth? And when is it right to keep a secret?

“A simple story with surprising depth in its examination of truth and compassion.” —Kirkus Reviews
Dandi Daley Mackall
