”Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”
‘A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.
Ahh Of Mice and Men... Definitely an underrated book, I agree. I studied this back in secondary school and loved the movie too. It's a book that will leave an imprint on your life forever. Or it did mine anyway. I always shed a tear (several times throughout ) whenever reading or watching it. Oh the feels! Poor Lennie was, at heart, a gentle giant who was misunderstood but sadly didn't know his own strength (physically). *sniffs and wipes away a tear* A worthy read for sure. And I never knew it was on the banned book list untill I saw Jordan's post! Wow!
