Customer Review: To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a story about Scout, a young girl in Maycomb, Alabama. Her father, a lawyer, tells his children, “Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird,” as he defends a black man charged with assaulting a white girl. As Scout and her brother, Jem, explore the adult world as life goes on, learning and growing up at the same time, Harper Lee gives us a book that is, above all, a satisfying tale of human courage.
