To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

mocking birdRecommended by Nicole E.

This is a book about innocence and courage. It’s narrated by a 6-year-old girl named Scout Finch who started off as an immature child and as the book goes on she gains knowledge. Her father, Atticus Finch, is the lawyer forĀ a black man, Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping his neighbor. This book reminds me of “The Death of Emmett Till” because both were set during the Civil Rights movement.
