My rating: 9/10
I just finished ‘To Kill a Mockingbird a few seconds ago, and I have to do a narration for school anyway today, so I thought “I should do a short review of this book!”, and I will, right now, this second, no more waiting, no distractions, Oh hey, a donut!

Ok, back on topic!
So, I always wanted to read this book, ever since a few weeks ago. 😛
I asked friends and family what it was about, and they didn’t give a detailed description, and now I know why, and it was probably because of everything that happened in the book, along with not wanting to spoil it for me. So now, I’m going to
spoil it for you give you a description of the book!
So, the book is told in First-Person, by an 8-year old Scout Finch, the protagonist of the book. Her father, who’s name is Atticus, is a lawyer, and her brother, the other protagonist, is named Jem (short for Jeremy).
Scout has to face a horrible racist situation, when her father is appointed to defend a black man. In the trial, Atticus reveals the truth, which is against the accusers, but still results in Tom (the black man) being thrown in jail. He makes a run for it, and, big spoiler, gets shot.
The rest I’ll leave a mystery, because you should really read this book if you haven’t already.
So yeah, I really liked this book, it showed an 8-year olds perspective on racism, and justice.
Fun Random Fact: This is Harper Lee’s ONLY novel.
