aulsmith (67): Read as an adult and hated it.

PitcherBooks (75): JF, YA, All Ages. Multiple award winner. The 1998 book that started it all, first of the 7-book series.

sturlington (20): My son preferred the graphic novel adaptation. The full text was a little too slow-going for him. He loves the movies.

PitcherBooks (67): YA, All Ages. Award-Winner. 1. It's a well-written, interesting and altogether compelling piece of historical fiction. 2. You can't live in America without reading it at least once. 3. If you love the movie (who didn't?), the book is even better. 1960 Pulitzer Prize winner. "Deals with the issues of racism that were observed by the author as a child in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama. Despite being Lee's only published book, it led to Lee being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom of the United States for her contribution to literature in 2007. Lee has also been the recipient of numerous honorary degrees..." per Wikipedia.… (mer)

PitcherBooks (59): Multiple award winner. JF, YA, All Ages. Humorous tale of a brave girl genius with neglectful parents sent to a school - terrible in every way - except for her one wonderful teacher, Ms. Honey, and her poor put-upon classmates :-) Trials and tribulations abound but she overcomes all to a happy and satisfying end.
