Book Description

From the co-author of Black Mass comes a gripping YA novel inspired by the true story of a young man's false imprisonment for murder — and those who fought to free him. On a hot summer night in the late 1980s, in the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury, a twelve-year-old African-American girl was sitting on a mailbox talking with her friends when she became the innocent victim of gang-related gunfire. Amid public outcry, an immediate manhunt was on to catch the murderer, and a young African-American man was quickly apprehended, charged, and — wrongly — convicted of the crime. Dick Lehr, a former reporter for the Boston Globe’s famous Spotlight Team who investigated this case for the newspaper, now turns the story into Trell, a page-turning novel about the daughter of an imprisoned man who persuades a reporter and a lawyer to help her prove her father’s innocence. What pieces of evidence might have been overlooked? Can they manage to get to the truth before a dangerous character from the neighborhood gets to them? The first book for young adults by award-winning journalist and adult nonfiction author Dick Lehr. Trell's story is based on a real case that the author was associated with--Trell will include an author's note accordingly. Dick Lehr was a member of the Spotlight team at the Boston Globe and is the author of two nonfiction books for adults—Black Mass (about Whitey Bulger, and recently made into a film starring Johnny Depp as Bulger) and The Birth of a Nation: How a Legendary Filmmaker and a Crusading Editor Reignited America’s Civil War.
