'To Kill a Mockingbird'

"To Kill a Mockingbird. We've already talked about it lots. My 10-year-old daughter even named two of our foster kittens Finch and Scout. She didn't know about the book or the characters at the time! Crazy, huh? It's such a complex book and so touching. I think it taps into that innate sense of justice that most kids feel. And it speaks to the racial issues that we as a society still face."
-- Laura Laing, Baltimore, M.D.
