To Kill a Mockingbird Book | Harper Lee- honestly one of the best books I've ever read. Really gives insight to life at the times. I recommend the book for summer reading, grades 7 and up, but anyone younger should ask a parent first, because of some language and other things.
"I wanted you to see what real courage is.... It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what." -- Atticus Finch | To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Harper Lee: American writer best known for her 1960 Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. It is Lee's only published book, but the critically-acclaimed bestseller made quite an impact on its own. Much of the book is autobiographical and details what Lee saw as a child growing up in the South. The powerful story deals with racial inequality and injustice in the Deep South.
