This is my favorite book. I read it in the 8th grade and connected to it instantly. Harper Lee is brilliant! To address such adult topics through the eyes of a child, was amazing. It was a book before its time.

Before I read "To kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee I read "My Antonia" by Willa Cather and I absolutely didn't like it. So as you can imagine I was excited to read this book. I heard from family and friends that this was a good book. After finishing this book the people who told me about it were right. To kill a Mocking bird is a good book. Some of the best parts were the trial, the ending,and the myth of Boo Radley.The trial was between Atticus and Mr. Ewell. Atticus's is a defense attorney and he was defending a black man named Tom Robinson. He was accused of raping Mr. Ewell's daughter. Now this book was written in the times of racism. I did not expect the jury to come up with there conclusion. Next another good part was the ending. It was not at all what I expected it to be. Can't say much because it will ruin most of the book. Only thing I'm going say is someone in this book dies. Now through out this book Scout and Jem, Atticus's children, are trying to get Boo Radley to get out of the house. Their friend Dill comes up with the plans. Some of the ideas Dill comes up with are pretty funny. One time they try to give a note to Boo through a window. The window is too high up for them to reach so they use a fishing pole. "To Kill a Mockingbird" also deals with some big issues. One issue is judgement. In ""To Kill a Mockingbird" Atticus is being critisize for how he raises his kids. He lets his daughter be a "tom boy" and let her where overalls. They think she should wear dresses and makeup. Also, he nevers punishes them by spanking or grounding. The next issue the book deals with is racism. It talks about how blacks and whites are segegated. Once again I would say more but it would give away some surprises.

There are few books which you must read in your lifetime. There are few books which will leave an indelible mark on your consciousness. To Kill A Mockingbird is one such book. I had to read To Kill A Mockingbird as part of a summer reading assignment when I was in high school. Certainly, reading this piece was anything but a task. I couldn't put it down. I became so engrossed that my brother got interested and read it too. My brother was so taken with the book that he started calling me 'Boo Radley' and continued to do so for many years. This book leaves you with something to think about for years to come. You keep a piece of it in your heart.

The book To Kill a Mockingbird is a very good book. I would recommend it to anyone in high school or older. This book is about a family growing up and going through hardships and overcoming them. Atticus, the father, is in my opinion a great example of a single parent. His children, Jem and Jean Louise (Scout) love him and respect him. Jem and Scout have a great brother/sister relationship. This is a really good book to read for school or just to past the time.
