In Search of Mockingbird by Loretta Ellsworth
Erin's mom died when she was young. On her 16th birthday, her dad gives her a copy of her mother's diary from which Erin learns they shared a love of To Kill a Mockingbird and writing. Erin runs away to find Harper Lee, thinking that will make her closer her mother. On this road trip to self discovery, she finds a couple of folks to help her on the way. The characters were a little far-fetched, but completely likeable. This was a quick read and Erin was sympathetic. I give it a tentative yay.
