To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

28 Sep

Scout and Jem, brother and sister, are growing up in a sleepy southern town of Maycomb, Alabama raised by a quiet but strong father Atticus in the 1930’s. Atticus is the lawyer for a black man on trial for raping a white woman in a time when the facts do not matter and prejudice runs to the extreme. Together they take a journey of growth, compassion and consciousness.

Engaging story told from the viewpoint of a child. There is good character and setting development but the story never drags. This novel with make you evaluate yourself and your priorities.

Pulitzer Prize Winner in 1961. 1960, 309 pages.
