Real Courage: The Story of Harper Lee is a young adult biography delving into the life of famous author, Harper Lee. Katherine Don does an exceptional job of telling not only Harper Lee's story but also a history of the time. This gives young readers a better grasp of the events that shaped Lee as a writer and a person. Real Courage gives the bigger picture view of Harper Lee's life making her seem less obtuse.
Katherine Don shows us that although the media tends to portray Harper Lee as a hermit, she in fact lead an adventurous and fulfilling life both in Monroeville and New York. Real Courage is perfect quick read for young readers and adults alike who are interested in a "just the facts" approach to the story of Harper Lee. Don doesn't speculate about Harper, she tells the story of her life in a pleasant but informative way. It's especially nice to have the photographs, news articles and even advertisements to tie in with Harper's story. All the extras give depth and a sense of the time to Real Courage. This would be a great addition to any young reader's or Mockingbird fan's library.
