Scout Finch is a tomboy living in Maycomb, Alabama. Her home is a quiet town, and it couldn't possibly have seen what was coming. Her father is assigned the infamous Tom Robinson case and the town shows its true colors, while Scout is just trying to live and learn.
Mrs. Harper Lee's classic has received praise unequalled in literature, and every bit of it deserved. Scout's childhood is slow-paced enough to provoke nostalgic longing with enough intrigue to hook the reader indefinitely. There's quite a bit of subtlety to pick up on beyond the simple Atticus Finch style of bluntly generalizing to provide themes and morals for a child's understanding. Among all the rules included in this romance, the underlying message is something as uncommon as inflicting harm on the mockingbirds of the world. And yet it seems just as relevant.
