    Summary: To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic that takes place in the south in the nineteen-thirties. Scout Finch is a little girl who tells the story of her family and town. She grows up with her older brother Jem, and their beloved father Atticus. Atticus is a lawyer and a fair man. The plot twists as he defends a black man. Scout and Jem must cope with adult challenges while just children.

    Evaluation: I thought To Kill a Mockingbird was entertaining. There were so many turns in the plot and the story flowed all over. Many people can relate to this book because it was told by a child. We can all recall those emotions and thoughts of when we were younger. I would recommend this book; it almost makes you travel back in time.

    Summary: To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic written in times when racism was still happening in America. The main character Scout, is a little girl who the book is told by. Scout and her brother Jem have a very influential father, and Atticus has a controversial case that he receives a lot criticism for. Scout and her brother also try to find their answers about their legendary neighbor Boo Radley.

    Commentary: This was an alright book. I know it’s a classic, but it had a few dull moments. It is a book you have to read one day though. This book did have its moments where it was relly hard to put down though. It is a book you need to read.

    Summary- The Finch family story is told by the youngest member, Scout. Scout is a little girl who grows up with her older brother Jem, listening to their father Atticus give his advice to them. Atticus is a lawyer and his latest assignment is defending a black man.

    Commentary- The story of understanding the world, and growing up being treated much like a boy is Scout’s way of storytelling. The author portrays the younger sibling’s reactions to the older sibling very well. Sadness comes and goes, but that is how life was and is. This is the best story I have read regarding that period of our history. All in all a great book!!!

    Rating- 5 Stars!
