To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I first read this at age 13, as required reading in eighth grade. It affected me profoundly then, but I have a much greater appreciation for it now.
Below is an article from the student-created newspaper, The Troubadour, from my K-8 school, St. Francis de Sales in Houston, Texas. I was the news editor, but I'm not sure if I wrote this article, as it doesn't have my byline. The article appeared on the top of page 2 of the December 18, 1970 issue.
Review is here.
