Middle School Monday: I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora
I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampara
Lucy, Elena and their friend Michael have been a trio since they were tiny kids. They are kids who care passionately about the things they love. Whether that's sports or tackling a stack of books from Elena's uncle's second-hand book store. Not everyone in their class feels this same feeling when it comes to the list of summer reading options their teacher gives them.
On that list is To Kill A Mockingbird which was the favorite book of their old teacher. It's also Lucy's favorite and she can't imagine why someone wouldn't be excited to read it. So she and her friends cook up a plan to make people take notice of the book because they can't wait to read it, not because they have to. It's a plan that's part subterfuge, part rumor and part luck. And it has to do with the #Ikillthemockingbird.
This is the perfect book to read after the news that Harper Lee, the author of To Kill a Mockingbird will be releasing a new book this spring!
