To Kill a Mockingbird

Title: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee
Year: 1960

Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.

What a great book. It is a tale of small town USA, prejudice, discrimination, and one mans fight against it in the 1930’s. It is told through a child’s eyes, which gives the book a sort of innocence even when it’s awash in racism.

The images and characters, from Atticus Finch to Scout, that Lee creates will never fade from your mind.

Everyone should read this book. It is a great book for school, both for its entertainment values and the issues that it deals with. I wish that I had read it in English class.
