Scout and her brother Jem are just playful kids when their father is assigned to the case of a black man raping a white woman. They had never been affected by one of Atticus' cases before, and are surprised to have this one impact their lives. And, though Scout is growing up enough to realize the labels society places on people of different race and social status--and enough to have her aunt scolding her about her tomboyish behavior, she learns a lot more about life when this case comes about.

I wasn't looking forward to reading To Kill a Mockingbird (by Harper Lee) at all. I had to read it though, for a test that I am taking to test out of an English class. I reluctantly started the novel, and I ended up loving it!
To Kill a Mockinbird is actually a simple novel about a sleepy Southern town. The narrator, a young girl by the name of Scout, lives with her father and brother. They all get along quite well, both with each other and with everyone else in town. Then Scout's father is asked to defend a black man in court. The man was charged with a crime he did not commit, and the father is determined to free him from any sentence. Because Scout and her family live in the South in the 1930s, many people in the town are still rascist and problems arise.
To Kill a Mockingbird was a wonderful piece of literature that anyone could appreciate.

To Kill A Mockingbird follows the Finch family through the tough age of Racism. Scout and Jems father, Aticus, is a lawyer who has chosen to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman. In the small southern town of Macomb it is completly insane to actually defend a black man, no matter what the charges. The trial stirs up alot of trouble and shows the true feelings of alot of the town folk. Scout and Jem are learning to adapt and survive through this hard time, and most importantly learning to grow up.

This novel is a great look into the past and is defently a classic everyone should read.

This book was my favorite book assigned to my accelerated English class in my freshmen year. Out of 5 books, this one topped the rest. An excellent choice to show life back in the days of prejudice.

I read this a while ago for English class. I have to say that It was one of the better picks by the teachers. Typical coming of age story. Although it frustrated me that you didn't really know what's going on for such a long time. Good page turner if you're not FORCED to read it.

This was a very good book but the only problem i think people might have with it is that it takes a long time to get into the really cool stuff and even though i didnt mind some people might and that is why i rated it a 4 instead of a 5

I love this book! It's soo great. Even though it's an older book we all can relate to it. I had to read it for school and I loved it. Especially the first part of the book. I love how great the writing is. Harper Lee really describes all of the characters. To Kill a Mocking Bird is just a great classic read.

Scout and Jem had several problems to deal with. They were very interested in the story of thier neighbor Boo Radley (who they heard was crazy). They and thier friend dill were always trying to spy and find out more. Scout was starting school and she was having a hard time adjusting. She was allways getting into fights. Jem was finding strange things in a hole in a tree.

These were minor stories.The main plot was that Atticus was defending a black man accused of raping a white women. The whole town was into this case cause they all thought he was guilty. Also it is the early 30s. It went into school were the children were going. The father faced many things that were bad even in the middle of the case. Such as the mob going to kill the black man and the mad dog (witch has rabizes)and the father, Atticus shot the dog to save all the people. He was an intellegant and talk about all things to help all people. All the people had learned a good leason thhat year.
