Forget everything you heard about this book being banned; this novel is an amazing piece of literature. Set in the antebellum period, the book tells the story of Huck Finn, a young boy running away from home with an escaped slave. As they travel down the Mississippi River, they meet up with a racist duo who use Huck and Jim (the slave) to their advantage. Huck is faced with the brutal culture difference of the Deep South compared to his Missouri home, but must ultimately confront an inner battle. This book is a perfect transition if you have just finished reading "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." Also, it's interesting to see how Twain crafts satire into the story with sheer perfection. You will not be disappointed by this book!
