Waiting on Wednesday - I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we are eagerly anticipating.

My anticipation of this one began yesterday at 6AM when I read the review on Fuse#8. Having read three of the four books Betsy refers to in the review, and liking only two, I am interested in reading both that fourth book and this one.

I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora. 176 p. Roaring Brook Press, May 20, 2014. 9781596437425.

Publisher synopsis: When Lucy, Elena, and Michael receive their summer reading list, they are excited to see To Kill A Mockingbird included. But not everyone in their class shares the same enthusiasm. So they hatch a plot to get the entire town talking about the well-known Harper Lee classic. They plan controversial ways to get people to read the book, including re-shelving copies of the book in bookstores so that people think they are missing and starting a website committed to “destroying the mockingbird.” Their efforts are successful when all of the hullabaloo starts to direct more people to the book. But soon, their exploits start to spin out of control and they unwittingly start a mini revolution in the name of books.

What are you waiting on?
