To Kill A MockingBird By Harper Lee

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do."
To Kill A MockingBird: Atticus Finch to Jem

To kill a mockingbird takes place during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The story revolves around Scout Finch her brother Jem and their father Atticus Finch. Atticus is a widower and he raises his children with the help of a housekeeper named Calpurnia.

The book is all about growing up. The story takes place betweenn1933 and 1935 in Maycomb a small town in Alabama. Atticus Finch who is a lawyer takes in the case of a black man who is charged with raping a white woman. For Scout and Jim, things change during the trial and after. They learned things they could never have imagined otherwise. In a nutshell, the book is against Prejudice and Racism. The reader can feel the character in many situations. The book is an easy read even though it has deep, underlying messages. It teaches you to stand up for what is right. The book is a great read for anyone who has empathy regardless of age, gender or culture

The book withstood the test of time and was passed down the generations. Pick up the book and the words will speak to you. This book should be read at least once by every single person in their lives.
