To Kill a Mockingbird
By; Harper Lee
Scout Finch, 6,and her older brother, Jem , live in sleepy Maycomb town in the 1930's. Spending much of their time with their friend Dill and spying on their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. When Atticus, their widowed father and a respected lawyer, defends a black man named Tom Robinson against fabricated rape charges, the trial and tangent events expose the children to evils of racism and stereotyping.
What I thought was powerful is that this book has a lot of humor and warmth, even though they were dealing with serious issues like rape and racial inequality. This book is very heartfelt and deep.
