Sinopsis/Synopsis:

Truman tertegun, bingung melihat rambut pendek dan celana monyet Nelle. “Kau… perempuan?”
Nelle menatapnya tajam. Nada suara Truman yang tinggi, rambut pirangnya, dan setelan seragam kelasi putihnya telah mengecoh Nelle juga. “Kau… laki-laki?”

Tru dan Nelle bertemu di Monroeville, Alabama. Tru ditinggalkan orangtuanya dan Nelle kekurangan kasih sayang ibu. Meski karakter mereka bertolak belakang—Tru yang introvert dan Nelle yang aktif dan tomboy—mereka dengan cepat bersahabat, menghabiskan banyak waktu bermain di perpustakaan, rumah pohon, bahkan Gedung Pengadilan. Suatu saat kesukaan terhadap Sherlock Holmes dan kisah misteri membawa mereka dalam petualangan jenaka yang mendebarkan.

Kekuatan persahabatan mereka mengubah kepahitan hidup menjadi detail-detail manis penuh warna, sekaligus kelak menginspirasi novel fenomenal To Kill a Mockingbird yang mengantarkan Harper Lee mendapatkan Pulitzer Prize.

Long before they became famous writers, Truman Capote (In Cold Blood) and Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird) were childhood friends in Monroeville, Alabama. This fictionalized account of their time together opens at the beginning of the Great Depression, when Tru is seven and Nelle is six. They love playing pirates, but they like playing Sherlock and Watson-style detectives even more. It’s their pursuit of a case of drugstore theft that lands the daring duo in real trouble. Humor and heartache intermingle in this lively look at two budding writers in the 1930s South.

Sinopsis/Synopsis:

Dua saudari. Dua hati. Dua mimpi. Dua kehidupan. Satu tubuh.

Grace dan Tippi adalah kembar siam, tubuh mereka menyatu dari pinggang ke bawah. Mereka mengalahkan takdir dengan terus hidup sampai berumur enam belas tahun. Mereka membagi segalanya satu sama lain, tidak bisa membayangkan untuk berpisah. Bagi mereka, berpisah adalah sebuah tragedi.

Namun, sesuatu terjadi pada mereka. Sesuatu yang tidak pernah mereka bayangkan sebelumnya

Grace and Tippi. Tippi and Grace. Two sisters. Two hearts. Two dreams. Two lives. But one body.

Grace and Tippi are conjoined twins, joined at the waist, defying the odds of survival for sixteen years. They share everything, and they are everything to each other. They would never imagine being apart. For them, that would be the real tragedy.

But something is happening to them. Something they hoped would never happen. And Grace doesn’t want to admit it. Not even to Tippi.

How long can they hide from the truth—how long before they must face the most impossible choice of their lives?
