To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, written by Harper Lee, is told through the eyes of a tomboy named Scout. Scout witnesses how her community reacts to descrimination in her town and a black man accused of rape. This book is inspiring to people of all ages. The part that grabbed me the most was how Scout's father defended the black man and is also the only one who really believes he is innocent. The book's mood was serious. I also enjoyed reading about the development of Scout. In the beginning of the book, she was a young and rambunctious kid and by the end of the book she was a young, mature kid. Chessa H.
