---

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of the great American classics. Taught in schools throughout the nation, it offers up a tale told by young Scout Finch, who—even as a young child—must deal with an array of social and racial issues still relevant today. Scout depends on the love and guidance of her father, Atticus Finch, and the protection of her older brother Jem, navigating both conventional and unconventional friendships, as she learns lessons about life, truth, and self-preservation.

Scout Finch and her brother Jem come of age through the experience of dealing with the turmoil that surrounds their family when their attorney father, Atticus is appointed to represent a young black man accused of raping a poor white woman in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama. Along the way, they experience friendships that defy color and social stigma; they learn the importance of the truth, and face the reality that many people will trade character and integrity for comfort.

To Kill a Mockingbird author, Harper Lee, is said to have based the book on her own young life in Monroeville, Alabama, and to have modeled Atticus Finch after her father, Amasa Lee. She won a Pulitzer Prize for the novel in 1961, and for many years, it remained her only published work. In July of 2015, Lee published a book that she wrote before Mockingbird titled, Go Set a Watchman. Go Set a Watchman is not the sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, but is the parent book on which Mockingbird was based.
