Now in my English class, we are reading To Kill a Mockingbird, and it's so beautiful and funny and amazing, I wonder to myself reading why I haven't picked it up before.
For an assignment, we are to write a little descriptive essay about something in your neighborhood. Something good, something bad, something specific. Just like when Lee was describing the Radley house with a 'swept yard that was never really swept...' It was quite the joy to start writing the story, I even put it up online for you to read! It is called The Trees are Eyelashes and it's the best thing I've written all year.
Won't you make one? I love to read new things.
Take a look up yonder. The sun rises for you.
