I use this novel in my English II class, and my students always love it. It's so charming yet serious. We see the world through young Scout Finch's eyes, and her take on the world is refreshing. My kids and I laugh outloud when we read this book. Of course, it's also a heartwrenching tale of racism and brutality. This is an excellent book that I read time and again, and I never lose interest in it.
