Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression, To Kill a Mockingbird follows three years in the life of 8-year-old Scout Finch, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus--three years punctuated by the arrest and eventual trial of a young black man accused of raping a white woman. Though her story explores big themes, Harper Lee chooses to tell it through the eyes of a child. The result is a tough and tender novel of race, class, justice, and the pain of growing up.
The book pictured is not the edition I'm reading, or the edition that the publication information is for. Amazon didn't have a picture for the edition I'm reading.
We're reading this book for school, and I have one of the school's copies. Obviously, I'm not going to be keeping the book, but I felt like it could still qualify for In My Mailbox.
