Ffgg - Poem by imani halley

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is told from the point of view of Scout finch. She lives in the sleepy town of Maycomb with her older brother jem, and there widowed father Atticus. Atticus is a prominent lawyer in the depression stricken town of Maycomb. To the consternation of the racist town Atticus agrees to defend a black man named Tom Robinson who has been accused of raping a white women. This causes many problems in the life of the children as they explore good and evils. These experiences are highlighted when scout is called a ' nigger lover' at school by other children. Her father Atticus explains to her he's doing the right thing and everyone deserves to be treated as an equal. This book explores several moral dilemmas we face very single day as a child and as an adult. It teaches your life is lived the way you want it to be lived. The book also has a comedic undertone which takes away from the seriousness, but Harper Lee wrote it so well the transitions from funny to serious are as smooth as can be. If you're looking for a book you can read from cover to cover with plenty of suspense this is a great book to pick up.
