  1. I had to read Lord of the Flies for school twice! (Air Force brat so I went to 11 different schools). I don’t remember reading Where the Red Fern Grows, but saw the movie when I was in grade school and was devastated (wasn’t during school though).

    Born in 68, I started Kindergarten when I was four. Don’t remember what grades I read it in, just that loathed it even more the second time.

  2. “she would make a good drug lord” – that’s a hilarious compliment 😉

    I’ve never read or watched Lord of the Flies either (nor desired to). Not sure about several of the others. I’ve never understood why having things die seems to be a requirement for children’s books to get awards, but it’s probably what’s put me off “award-winning” things in general. There was a book with a horse dying in a particular stupid fashion that really scarred me. Also, Bridge to Terabithia was particularly awful, given that the girl was the only interesting part of that book (and who I identified with, of course).
