I think every student should read this book. It's a small book, a quick read, and a great story. What happens in a small town that has grown addicted to tradition? It's not until the very end you find why this is so important to these town folks and what happens every year. It's a great conversation starter, and for students analyzing other books, plays, movies, it's a great story for comparison.

A truly creepy and interesting short story. Starts off with a nice, sunny day, in the end... well, read it yourself. Teaches you a life lesson... small pieces of paper with black dots on it are bad.
