Teen Book Review: To Kill A Mockingbird

Title: To Kill A Mockingbird

Author: Harper Lee

Rate It: 5 stars

Review It: This book was written with such a powerful, moving voice, even though the narrator, Jean Louise Finch(Scout), is a young girl about eight years old by the story's end. She describes these seemingly small and unimportant events that go on during her life in Maycomb County. Then, in Part Two, the stroy suddenly erupts into a suspenseful climax when the trial of Tom Robinson, an African American, takes place for rape against a white girl. The evidence is substantial against the girl, Mayella, but she still wins the case because she's white...Like I said, I won't ruin anything else for you, but it's just a really gripping must-read-before-you-die classic.
