Loved To Kill a Mockingbird (6-15-06), by Peggy
This book is fabulous! After you read it, you must see the movie. They are both great. Anyways. The book is about how this black man is inaccurately accused of raping a white woman. By all the clues throughout the trial you can tell is is not true. The black man's lawyer is a white man and a girl named Scout and a boy name Jem's father. The father is called all sorts of names for defending a black man because it takes place in the south where discrimination is still in effect. This book is great and it shows historical events such as the Civil Rights Movement while being an interesting and intriguing book at the same time. This is hard to do however Harper Lee does it well. I recommend this book to all wanting a good read. However it is a good book to read on your own time when you have the time to read it carefully because then you will notice all the metaphors and what the title actually means. All around I loved this book and I think peope should read it. It is a good book for Social Studies and English. 5 Stars.
