"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."
Told through the voice of Harper Lee's heroine, the young and impressionable Scout Finch, this tale of growing up in the racially-charged deep southern United States offers many lessons on friendship, community, justice and acceptance.
"If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are."-Rosemarie Urquico
