Readers Dozen – April 2021

Were you forced to read {insert book title here} in junior high or high school? Did you actually read it? Or, did you read it and wonder why in the world it was considered a classic?

This month’s challenge is a chance to see if you wronged a good book – or if you were totally justified in writing an essay claiming that the book was trash.
