Citizens of Maycomb are racists and prejudiced. They judge each other by how they look, speak, or what gender they are. After Atticus Finch is asked to defend Tom Robinson, a colored man who is accused of raping a woman, his children learn true lessons, some being that people in Maycomb side with others over others. Essentially, this story depicts a young girl coming-of-age, who is raised into a society where people are not as innocent compared to others. It is up to her father to teach her real life lessons and behaviors.
*spoiler* I really enjoyed reading this book because it helped me realize some lessons. Atticus, who is represented as one of the mockingbirds, is my most favorable character. He does not mind the words of others. He works for good and is good. When I started reading To Kill a Mockingbird, I found the book boring. We can realize that Maycomb appointed Tom Robinson as guilty. This is an example that Maycomb County is a racist place. Never would I have realized that I would have felt a deep connection to the book. The plot is outstanding!
I think the cover looks well. It contains a picture of a tree, in which the mockingbird probably lives.
