My sixth grade class reading included:
The Good Earth, Cry the Beloved Country, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Perhaps a little ambitious for such a young group and honestly most went over my head,
but I couldn't put To Kill a Mockingbird down.
I read straight through, stayed up late, soaked in all the details.
I was transported into the world of Jem, Scout, Atticus, Tom, Boo and Dill,
and I fell in love with reading. Thank you, Harper Lee.
Rest in Peace.
