Let's Booktalk: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee



Courtesy of Goodreads
Would you give legal advice for only a payment of potatoes? Would defend a man in a town where the color of your skin determined you guilt? Would you stand up against an angry mob whose only intention was to kill? Would you allow a man who committed murder in defense of children to go free?

Atticus Finch would do all this and more as his daughter Scout narrates her story of life as a child in Maycomb, Alabama during the depression era. Scout's story of her adventures with brother Jim will show the world through a child's eyes. She will witness events that would show her a world divided by racism and money, and how doing the right thing, is not always legal, as well as how the law turns a blind eye on doing the wrong thing. Her story of only one year from her childhood will show how Scout will influence and be influenced by the people and the events surrounding her father and his pursuit for justice and raising his children to do the right thing even as you stand alone.
