Text Review

"I was hoping for more excitement: however, the book had its moments. The courtroom scenes will keep you engaged and make you want to read to the end."-Adam Gearhart

"To Kill a Mockingbird" is a story of innocence, courage, and racism in the south. Scout begins as an immature 6 year old. Her brother, Jem, and friend, Dill, are obsessed by the neighborhood boogie man, Arthur (Boo) Radley. As the story progresses, Scout matures but maintains her realistic take on the world. When her father, Atticus, is appointed to defend a black man, Tom Robinson, who was falsley accused of the rape of a white woman. Throughout the story, you begin to further understand the meaning of the quote "Shoot all the bluejays you want...but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

"You never really understand a person until you consider thingsfrom his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walkaround in it."--Atticus (page 30)"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of gettingthe idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It'swhen you know you're licked before you begin, but youbegin anyway and you see it through no matter what. Yourarely win, but sometimes you do.”--Atticus (page 116) "You just hold your head high and keep those fists down. Nomatter what anyone says to you, don’t let ‘em get your goat.Try fighting with your head for a change…it’s a good one,even if it does resist learning."--Atticus (page 76)"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit'em, butremember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."--Atticus (page 92)
