“ So “To Kill a Mockingbird” is the rare class of American literature that is relatively easy to read and pretty fun to read. It’s got a cool and somewhat creepy plot that draws you in.” Very poor writing. The book deserves a better description and if you cannot do it, better don’t even try. Cool and creepy? :(

I fell in love with the story, both reading it and through the film. What I love about multiple reads is that you hopefully learn to understand and appreciate the themes and values expressed in them. For example, when I first read it in school, I didn't understand the means behind the ambiguous final line. "And she would be there for Jem when he did." Upon reading it when I was older, I took away the meaning of being there for someone when you really need them.

The Scottsboro Boys is the name of the book based on the accusations against the nine black teenagers. The girl later refudiated it.

I loved TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. I read the book so much I had to put a rubber band on it to keep it together. I watch the movie everytime it's on TV.
