To Kill a Mockingbird Worth the Read

To Kill a Mockingbird Worth the Read

Racism. Injustice. Coming of age. To Kill a Mockingbird  is a book every 9th grader in America is reading, not just us freshman here at Santaluces. Those of you who only saw the movie or read excerpts from the book have been done an injustice. This book has depth that the movie can not even begin to portray. The mystery of the man locked in the Radley house and his relationship with the main characters Jem, Scout and Dill unfolds in this timeless tale.

The focus of the movie is Tom Robinson’s trial, but the book has so many more incredible pieces that would put the whole puzzle together for you. If you enjoyed that part of the movie, the book will make you appreciate it even more.

When I finished this book, it impacted me in a way that no book has ever done before. It takes a story from the 1930s and makes the bonds of family in a small town real.
