This is one of my favorite books. My sister read it in high school, so I read it in sixth grade as a challenge. It's not that difficult of a read, but is definitely amazing. The movie wasn't as good as the book, either.
To Kill a Monckingbird is a great title for the book, and is better explained and understood once the book is read. It incorporates law, history, racism, justice, injustice, crime, and, unbelievably, passion, all into one big masterpiece. A must-read.
