What I Think: I Kill the Mockingbird captured the magic of readers discovering classics, like To Kill a Mockingbird, and appreciating them for their timeless quality. The characters were likable and the plot moved along at a good pace. The end result will encourage young readers to give old books another chance.
+ Sweet and innocent with just the right amount of mischief.
— Some of the dialogue was a little unrealistic given the age of the children.
Long Story Short: 8/10! ❤
