To Kill A Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird was one of the best book I ever read. The
book mostly deals with how the main character, Atticus Finch,
deals with the controversy surrounding his actions and how he
tries to shelter his family from it.

The main part of the book takes place at the trial. A woman
named Mayella Ewell, blames a black man named Tom Robinson
of rape. Its not true, but she knows she can get away with it, since
the people in those days had lots of respect for white women, and
blacks were still treated like slaves. The main character, Atticus
Finch, defends Tom in the whole case. He is called a “Nigger
lover” for defending Tom, and his children’s friends make fun of
them at school since their father is defending Tom. Atticus tries
his best to be a fair lawyer, he know that tom didnt rape her.

When they had the trials Mayella Ewell think she will win the case
because shes white and hes black. When it comes time for
Atticus to question Mayella, he proves that Tom didnt rape her.

The jury leaves to come up with a verdict. When they come back,
they find Tom guilty. He is sentenced to be hung, and it is carried
out. After all this Mayella’s father, Bob Ewell wanted revenge
against Atticus for proving her daughter a liar. Atticus children are
walking home from the Halloween pageant, they found out that
they were being followed and then they are attacked. The next
thing they know is that they are being carried home, and Jem has a
broken arm and Scout a couple of bruises. Scout notices the man
who carried Jem home was Boo Radley, a next-door neighbor who
they never really talked to but know he is a very friendly person by
the way he leaves candy for them on the way to school in a hollow
tree outside his house. She later finds out that he had saved their
lives. She accepts him as a friend and tells Atticus that he is “Real
nice.” Atticus agrees and reminds her that most people are when
you get to know them.

I enjoyed reading this book. The book gets its name from when
Scout, who is the narrator, and her older brother Jem when they
both got air rifles for Christmas. They are told never to kill a
mockingbird because it sings beautiful songs and does no damage
to anyone.
