Addison Schact and his best friend Digger become obsessed with investigating the murder of a classmate as they travel through Washington DC's underworld in this "thoughtful coming-of-age story and engaging teenage noir" ( The New York Times ).

High school senior Addison Schacht is taking the prompt for his college entry essay to the University of Chicago to heart: What are your best and worst qualities? He begins to look back on his life so far and considers what getting into college, selling some pot to his classmates, his relationship with his best friend--not girlfriend--Digger, Virgil's Aeneid , and his growing obsession with the murder of a classmate, Kevin Broadus, all mean. The more he digs into his own past, the farther he stumbles into the middle of the murder investigation.

Filled with classic adolescent reflection and an intriguing mystery, The November Criminals is "one of the funniest, most heartfelt novels in recent memory--a book every bit as worthy of Mark Twain and J.D. Salinger" ( The Chicago Tribune ).
