Top Ten Best Classic American Literature Books


The Top Ten

1 To Kill a Mockingbird

It was an excellent commentary of the time where racism ignorance and hatred ruled, whites were treated better than blacks but in reality everyone is equal. The people in the court lacked reason, and there was also a sub-plot of Scout's tom boyish ways, and how unnaceptable it was viewed when in reality gender roles are useless, yet were all the rage back then. - ToptenPizza
