On the other hand the hype of Essentrics was actually worthy because that was her hook in the book. Reading the first couple of pages in the first chapter was interesting and deep explaining in a cellular level how our bodies work.

and they use different lessons from the past to get over these events. Hardships are often throughout To Kill A Mockingbird and bring aha moments to Scout and Jem. Evidence from the book shows how a real-life situation is more valuable in lessons to Scout and Jem “After all if Aunty could be a lady at a time like this, so could I” (Lee 271).

I thought it was pretty unique as I get the full senses of what the character feels as if I was part of this novel. The last book Caroline chose was Jasper John Dooley 's Star of the Week.
