I ordered this book from a member at random because my granddaughter needed it ASAP.

Does anyone have a copy of this book and willing to make a deal? Paperback or hardback, it doesn't matter. My granddaughter needs this book for her senior class reading list. PM me if you have a copy. Thanks a lot!!

Shirley

I am sorry I don't have that book to offer to you, but I am even more sorry that your  grandaughter has to read that book. I had to read it in school too and I really REALLY disliked it. I hope she will like it better. Good luck!

HaHa!! I told her the same thing. That was one book I hated!! I can't imagine why it's considered a classic?? and teachers are still making kids read it today. I was in high school in the late 50s - early 60s and we had to read it then. Enough is enough. There are lots of other really good books that they could be reading. Give it a rest, please!! That may be why most kids don't enjoy reading. They think all books are that bad, so why bother.
