Book Description: 

The second novel by Donna Tartt, &#160;bestselling author of <i>The Goldfinch</i> (winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize),&#160; <i>The Little Friend</i>&#160; is a grandly ambitious and utterly riveting novel of childhood, innocence and evil. <br><br><br>The setting is Alexandria, Mississippi, where one Mother&rsquo;s Day a little boy named Robin Cleve Dufresnes was found hanging from a tree in his parents&rsquo; yard. Twelve years later Robin&rsquo;s murder is still unsolved and his family remains devastated. So it is that Robin&rsquo;s sister Harriet&mdash;unnervingly bright, insufferably determined, and unduly influenced by the fiction of Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson--sets out to unmask his killer. Aided only by her worshipful friend Hely, Harriet crosses her town&rsquo;s rigid lines of race and caste and burrows deep into her family&rsquo;s history of loss. Filled with hairpin turns of plot and &ldquo;a bustling, ridiculous humanity worthy of Dickens&rdquo; (<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>), <i>The Little Friend</i> is a work of myriad enchantments by a writer of prodigious talent.
