To Kill a Mockingbird
Add to Cart failed.
This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, considered an American classic, was challenged and banned because of violence and its use of the N-word. To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is a story that takes place in a southern town. The main character, Scout, is a young girl whose father she calls by his name- Atticus is a lawyer. Atticus is helping a Black man named Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping a white woman. The story shows the injustice of the political system during this time, and how racism and personal opinions could easily sway the court to choose a side, even if there is no evidence. This story is unique since the court case that Atticus is fighting is told through the lens of Scout, who is only a young kid who doesn't understand a lot of what is happening. I first read this book when I was in seventh grade.

A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime. Very nice book, love it! This book was on my daughter school program, so I decide to read it. No regrets, very good book. Strongly recommend.
My advice would be to date him when he has free time. Would love to join. Anyway, I'm sad and disappointed and I know that it will be my job to keep the marriage together. No walking your daughter down the aisle, no giving your daughter away at the alter, nothing but you standing outside the temple waiting till it's over.
