Parent reviews for To Kill a Mockingbird
A Mississippi School Board sparked outrage this month when it voted to cut "To Kill a Mockingbird" from eighth-grade reading lists in Biloxi. The issue? While the backlash was swift, those who blindly defend "Mockingbird" are missing an important point. But that is not the only question. It is an adult fairy tale, that is often read by children in wildly different — and sometimes profoundly damaging — ways.

Common Sense says
I f you have never read To Kill A Mockingbird, I would advise you to stop reading this review immediately, and go and buy yourself a copy. Being in the voice of a young girl made a story about such brutal prejudice and discrimination different: it was youthful, it was playful, it was innocent, and to see such innocence corrupted by a genuine sense of reality throughout the novel was one of the most worthwhile parts of the book. Scout has an older brother, Jem, and they live with their father, Atticus: Atticus is a lawyer, and possibly one of my favourite characters of all time. I feel like often writers feel their characters need a defining trait, a fatal flaw: but Atticus was just genuinely a good person. He was moral, he was good, he was inspirational, just because he was such a good person.
