What I'm Reading

I just started this really promising YA novel called To Kill a Mockingjay by Harper Collins. In it, this girl named Scout Everdeen has to take a train to Montgomery, AL, and, armed only with a chiffarobe, kill a bunch of other kids so her father can bust Tom Robinson, who was wrongly accused of something, out of prison. Oh, and she falls in love with this boy from her neighborhood named Boo Mellark. I’m just getting into it, but it’s off to a great start! I hope she kills lots of other children!

Just you wait until the make-over scene when Scout’s stylists Cinna and Aunt Alexandra tell her to give up wearing overalls and her father’s hunting jacket and teach her how to be a lady in a flame-retardant jumpsuit.

Ah! I can actually see this as the next literary mash up!
