reading now: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Beach came home from Minnesota asking if we could read To Kill A Mockingbird. She told me many of the girls on her team had been talking about it. Most of them are older than Beach (I believe she is the 3rd or 4th youngest on the team) and they had read it for school. Whatever they had been saying about it made her curious.

Not able to turn up a copy at home (To Kill A Mockingbird is the favorite book of 2 of the 3 older children & they tend to hoard their copies.) we hit a local thrift store. Beach combed the shelves until she turned up a copy of her own.  

We are a few chapters in and I can already tell the book is a stretch for her, but not in a bad way. I get the feeling with books like these no one is 100% ready going into them...
