    "My daughter came home from high school with To Kill a Mockingbird and it brought back so many memories for me. I can totally understand why they are still using this book in schools. The story and writing are timeless, and honestly more important now than ever. If you haven’t read this book, or even at least seen the movie, you really need to pick this up. You’ll get lost in her stories but learn a lot about yourself, the Civil Rights movement, and just a little more about what it means to be human. I hope they keep using this book in schools until we can no longer say there is any discrimination in this world."

    "Interesting read but a bit depressing. I think this is for a certain kind of reader that is willing to trudge through the emotions and strife of the main character in an intimate setting. Beware Kindle readers because it isn't formatted very well."

    "This is an educational novel with an interesting and unique premise, but I don't know that it is actually an educational use book. This is a well reviewed and different product, but maybe not precisely what I am looking for here."

    "I bought this for my young daughter to read. She got really into the story and at times I would read portions of it to her. It really helped her to relax before it became time to go to sleep. I'd highly recommend this to any parent out there."

    "This book is a coming of age story of a boy in England. It is a great book but also the wording would be a little difficult for children today. "

    "This is a wonderful novel that teaches the hard knocks in life and how Nicholas worked hard to overcome obstacles. His hard work and diligence is a lesson in education that others can learn from. Setbacks happen, it's what you choose to do with them that matters."

    "This was not useful to me because I was looking for novels. This solution is a play and not a novel. As far as literature goes, I found this to be great to analyze and furthered my appreciation for literature as a whole."
