So, I'm not going to sugar coat this review at all. This book was terrible! There, I said it.
It was so hyped up when it first came out and I was so excited to read it. I'm sad to say that it was truly a disappointment. 
I absolutely love To Kill A Mockingbird. It's one of those books that will be around for a long time for good reason. I don't see this book having the same outcome. It just was a terrible read with a really weak plot. The idea and lesson this book is trying to teach is a good one, it was just gone about all wrong. 
I for sure will not be reading this book again.
