This novel was written by Harper Lee in 1960. The story took place in the 1930s in a small town in Alabama called Maycomb. Throughout the novel, the main character, Scout, her brother, Jem and their friend Dill, try to make their isolated neighbor, Boo Radley, leave his house. The novel also focuses on the racism against the black community in the town. Atticus, Scout’s father, was defending a black man, Tom Robinsion in a court case and during this case, Scout and her brother were able to learn life lessons and the way people are treated differently. To Kill a Mockingbird is a wonderful book for people to read. It shows the unfortunate reality of society. I definitely recommend this book for readers to learn important lessons.
