To Kill a Mockingbird

by Harper Lee

Growing up in a small town may sound boring, but Scout's childhood is anything but uneventful. Coming of age in a turbulent time, Scout learns much about human behavior as she experiences love, hatred, kindness, and cruelty.

Barbara's Notes: This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is of must-read caliber. It is masterfully written, and is on most high school required reading lists. Caution: inappropriate language. (Grades 9, 10, 11)
