To Kill a Mockingbird

This is a primary school student's, Scout's, childhood memory of 3 years including summers. Being the youngest child, having an elder brother by 4 years and a father whose work was a county attorney would make a girl's life pretty exciting thing. Adventures with her brother, Jem, trying to sneak into their neighbor Arthur "Boo" Radley's to see if he was really alive and existing, because he doesn't go out of his house and having their cousin over the summer makes the fun more enjoyable.

This book was special because it makes you see the 1940's from a child's perspective, more innocent, smarter in a way, more honest and more fragile. It will make you feel some twinge, not romance, in your heart. Totally recommend everyone to read it.
