Rory’s Book Club: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain was another book that I thought that I had read, but I hadn’t. I knew that he & Tom Sawyer were friends & had tricked some boys into white washing a fence for them by pretending it was fun. So, I took this to mean that I “knew the story”, but obviously didn’t.

So, I didn’t know the story. I also didn’t know that this book has been banned from some school districts, including my own because it is seen as racist. I’ve written a Pro Con list about this, but even having read the book & the controversy, I still can’t decide how I feel about it. I’ve never suggested that a book be censored before, but I could’ve lived without the language & I see why it’s been banned from some school districts. I just don’t know.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)
