OMG! I am soooooo excited to report that famed author Harper Lee will finally be releasing her sequel to To Kill a Mocking Bird! According to eonline, Mrs. Lee has given the go ahead to her publisher to release Go Set a Watchman on July 14th; just in time for my birthday! Anyone looking to get me a present, this will be a great one. I can’t wait to read about Scout’s life as she reflects on her childhood. I wonder if Boo Radley will make an appearance. “Mockingbird” was one of my favorite books growing up and I always thought there should be a sequel. The book was written in the 1950s, but is just being released this year. I am super stoked; how about you?

Since her first best seller took off, the author has remained out of the spotlight and refused to give interviews. Apparently her sister who shielded her from the press passed away this past November and another caregiver located the manuscript. Eonline reports Mrs. Lee has been in poor health and currently resides in an assisted living facility where she is mostly deaf and blind and confined to a wheelchair. If this is the case I am conflicted and now am unsure if I really want to purchase the sequel. Dilemma…
