To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird
""To Kill A Mockingbird" is a wonderful book, but its language and situations are too complex for a middle schooler to understand.  Better for high schoolers."
A Midsummer Night's Dream

The Necklace/The Pearls (Jewel)
The Necklace/The Pearls (Jewel)
"I've read both of these stories.  "The Necklace" is a sad French story(read in 9th grade).  "The Pearls"(12th grade) is Scandanavian(my heritage!).  I like Isak Dinesen's style the most."
The Call of the Wild (The Classic Collection)
