To Kill a Mockingbird tells the story of two children, sister Scout and brother Jem, and their childhood during surviving 3 years in the Great Depression. Scout and Jem spend most of their summers with their summer-neighbor, Dill, making up plays and spying on the town outsider, Boo Radley. During the school year, Scout finds herself in trouble one too many times and struggles with the concept of being a lady, especially when all she wants to do is wear overalls and beat up her classmates. Scout reminds me of some of my students. I remember reading this book in highschool but reading it as an adult is a whole different experience. This piece of historical fiction would be great for high school leveled students. For higher leveled middle school students ( 6th , 7th and 8th) this could be good as well.
