Bond and Simon, winners of the 2011 John Steptoe New Talent (Author) Award, have written a fictionalized story of Zora Neale Hurston’s childhood. The story, told by Carrie, Zora’s best friend, takes place in the small town of Eatonville, Florida, and recounts Zora’s spellbinding abilities as a storyteller. When a man is found murdered by the railroad tracks after a young boy brags about wrestling with an intangible alligator named Ghost, the stories take on an ominous and complicated character which threatens the peace and safety of the town and forces the three children to examine the double edged power of pretending.
