To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird is a book by Harper Lee written in the 1960s. This book revolves around southern Alabama in a rural life. To Kill a Mockingbird has a setting in the Great Depression, in three year period. Maycomb, Alabama was the town that they were from and they closed that information with them from the book with segregation. It is written from the point of view of a southern girl who's mother is dead and her father is a lawyer defending a Black man against a rape case that he had not committed. He tells them, the girl Scout and his brother Jem about the way of life and shows them all the right ways that people should go through. They should not hate a race or become racist because in every human, we are all alike.
But when he is defending the Black man, Tom Robinson, he has a hard time defending. He uses all the proofs that he has but because the case involves White Southerners who were also racist, the jury called him guilty. But Atticus, the father of Scout and the defending lawyer told him that he could help him later with the facts he has to gather. But before he could, Tom Robinson gets shot and he is killed. There is no way to help them but still there is the man who made all these mess and he tries to kidnap and maybe kill Scout and Jem. They both gets luckily saved by a man who they were always suspicious with and with the neighborhoo, Boo Radley. Socut becomes friendly with Mr. Radley and she learns that you can't judge someone by looking at their outside but you have to look inside.
