"To Kill a Mockingbird," a coming-of-age story about racism and injustice, overpowered wizards and time travelers to be voted America's best-loved novel by readers nationwide.
The Biloxi School District in Mississippi removed Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” off its eighth-grade reading list this month because, “There were complaints about it.
