“Like Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn … Charles Portis's True Grit captures the naïve elegance of the American voice.” — –Jonathan Lethem
“Portis has made an epic and a legend. Mattie Ross should soon join the pantheon of America’s legendary figures such as Kit Carson, Wyatt Earp, and Jesse James.” — –The Washington Post
"Like Twain, Portis respects his young narrator as a human being with a fully developed moral sensibility, even when the adults in the novel don't." — –Los Angeles Times
"Teens will be drawn into the book's adventure-packed storyline, strongly delineated characters, and moments of unexpected humor." — –School Library Journal
" True Grit is the best novel to come my way in a very long time… Marvelous." — –Roald Dahl
The Young Readers edition of the beloved American classic. Also available in a trade paperback edition (ISBN: 978-1-59020-459-7)with an afterword by Donna Tartt, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Goldfinch
True Grit is a great American novel that tells the story of a teenager’s overpowering effort to avenge the murder of her father. Set in a period in history when the law was much less well-established than it is now, True Grit takes its place alongside books like To Kill a Mockingbird and the novels of Mark Twain. It is a beloved American classic through and through. Leonard S. Marcus, renowned children’s book historian, has written a wonderful afterword meant especially for a young readership, available only in this edition.
