To Kill A Mockingbird By: Harper Lee

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a fantastic novel, which takes place in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama. It covers two years in the life of Scout, the protagonist, and her brother Jem. It is based off of Scouts point of view, looking back at the summer of 1933. Atticus Finch, a lawyer and Jem and Scout’s father, defends a black man, sending the town into chaos. Scout is quickly shown the unfairness of the world as the town spreads rumors of her father. However, she tries to stay strong and make her father proud by not fighting back. One of the main themes of To Kill A Mockingbird is “You don’t have to be big to make a difference.” A quote that shows this is, “So it took an eight-year-old child to bring 'em to their senses, didn’t it?”-Atticus (Pg. 210) I think this is so true and applicable to life. Scout shows Maycomb that she can make a difference, even if it is just in her small town. Harper Lee is a terrific writer, and makes strong connections to real-world problems. As you read, you will experience compassion, drama, kindness, love, hatred, humor and chaos, all in Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.
