Lee won a Pulitzer prize for this poignant story of racial injustice viewed through the eyes of a six-year-old girl. In 1935, Jean Louise (Scout) Finch and her older brother Jem are whiling away the summer in their sleepy Alabama town. But when their father, Atticus, agrees to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman, Scout and Jem learned some hard lessons about hatred. As powerful today as when it was first published.

I think I went to the only school where this was NOT required reading, so I wanted to see what I was missing. Every minute of this book is wonderful. A brilliant, beautiful, and sad classic. Everyone should read this whether required or not.

Jenn I was just thinking that I should re-read this, but your review made me realize that I may not have ever read it in school.
