Honestly, what a horrible cover (and title, for that matter) for such a good book.

This is a book about reading, and about how reading helps you think. Harper travels with her parents across the country; while they organize local churches to challenge books in schools, Harper reads and reads and reads--often reading exactly the kinds of books her parents and parents' friends are challenging.

I loved Harper's voice, and also the frequent references to favorite childhood books.
