Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Happy Holidays, BookBirdz followers! This next book review was written by Malia A., age 14. She is an active reader who shares her thoughts on the literary classic, Little Women. 

The book Little Women is really good. Four sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, struggle to support themselves and keep their household running because the family recently lost its fortune. Their father is fighting in the Civil War. As the girls get older, they each face personal moral challenges. The girls have their own characteristics that make them unique. Meg, the oldest, is polite and proper. Jo is can’t bear to be left on the sidelines, but must learn to be more ladylike. Beth is sweet, and very shy. And Amy is the baby of the family, and is confused by their new money situation. This book is definitely worth reading, I highly recommend it if you’re into classic novels with love and drama (and ages twelve and up). 


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Jade-Lynn B., age 14, has many interesting opinions on the literary classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, and she shares them with you below! 

download (3)To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a great book. I like it because it discusses many interesting things and it is very entertaining. It entails friendship, anger, and even some stalking. It’s a very weird and cool book. You should read this book because it’s also very mysterious. Keep in mind, there is some minor inappropriate language. It’s a touching and heart warming classic. You may understand and relate to some of the challenges that the main character, Scout, goes through as she grows up. Overall, this is a very good book to read. When I read To Kill a Mockingbird, I kind of felt like I was in the story itself, but you need to read it thoroughly to understand everything. I wish I could read more because this book is very interesting. So you should definitely read this book! I love it, so maybe you will too.

*Harper Lee’s new book, Go Set a Watchman, has recently been published, and an upcoming review on it will be posted very soon!
