To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is an eye-opening historical fiction novel. This book follows a young girl, Scout Finch, as she grows up in the south. She is the daughter of a well-known lawyer in her town and when her father, Atticus, takes on a case to defend an innocent black man she learns many valuable lessons. Throughout this novel, as Scout grows up she learns about racism and prejudice in her town.

This book is a beautiful piece of writing that everyone should read once in their life. One thing I loved about this book is that it is told from the POV as a young girl. Since this book is told from a younger person she has not learned about things such as prejudice and racism but once she does you can see the change in her perspective. Throughout this book, we see her as she grows up and goes through new experiences. Next, I love how easily this book can teach young readers about topics that are harder to talk about. Lee puts these topics in a straightforward and easy way to learn so it does not seem boring or unimportant. Lastly, I loved the main character, Scout. She has an amazing personality that is very likable and will make you want to keep reading this book.

In conclusion, this is an amazing book that I would recommend to everyone. This is a quick and easy read that you can learn many things from! -Eunchae, Grade 10
