What can I say? I Kill the Mockingbird obviously drew me in because the title obviously refers to the classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, aka The Literary Bible. So it was a must try. What I didn't know when I requested it (cause I wasn't paying attention to anything but the title) is that it is a children's book (maybe tweens) and was under 200 pages long.
I really enjoyed this little story. In an effort to make reading popular again, particularly the summer reading assignment To Kill a Mockingbird, a trio of friends sets up a campaign to hide all copies of To Kill a Mockingbird in bookstores and libraries throughout their area, even traveling hours sometimes to reach a destination. Using social media they track their progress and find both expected and unexpected results.
I Kill the Mockingbird is a funny little story that has a little bit of everything a book lover enjoys, especially the younger book lovers. Have you read any books for the younger set - even younger than typical YA - and been pleasantly surprised?
