I suggested this book to a friend who finally read it... rather reluctantly. It's now her favorite book. You will gain a lot of insight from reading this and really start spending more time considering how your life intertwines with the lives of the people you meet, if only in passing. Who have you met today and how could you have changed their life? Think about it.
To Kill a Mockingbird Book | Harper Lee- honestly one of the best books I've ever read. Really gives insight to life at the times. I recommend the book for summer reading, grades 7 and up, but anyone younger should ask a parent first, because of some language and other things.
