This is obviously a classic and like so many classics there are a lot of lessons that you can learn. I think every teenager should read this book. Just for the fact that even though she wrote the letter she continued doing the right thing until people no longer associated her transgression with her. No label determines who you are and can be. I can see this is a book I’ll be drawing on for parallels for years to come. If you have hesitated reading this one, pick it up. I always say that classics are classics for a reason. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
