A new edition of a streetwise classic, first published in 1966 and later adapted for the 1975 film Cornbread, Earl and Me. The novel centers on two 10-year-old boys living in Chicago who must deal with the repercussions of having their role model, college-bound Nathaniel “Cornbread” Hamilton, be mistaken by two cops for a fleeing burglary suspect.
