To Kill A Mockingbird
I've just finished reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee for about the fourth time. This si an excellent book with a serious message about striving to understand and accept others. The story follws a young girl, Scout, and her brother Jem as they grow up in Alabama. Their father Atticus is a lawyer, and in the book he defends an African American man named Tom Robinson. Issues of racism are prevelent throughout the case, and Scout and Jem grow throughout the story because of this case. The book is extremely well-written and sends a great message: "You will never understand a man until you walk in his shoes" -Atticus Finch.
