I think 'The Necklace is an outstanding story. It teaches readers to face their fears: Many are more afraid of the punishment than the crime. I truly recommend it!

This was required to read by our school, and turned out to be surprisingly good! This book is very touching with a moral of material possessions are not everything. I recommend this book especially to all people who choose material possessitions upon all else--this could be you someday! Watch out!
