If you've read To Kill a Mockingbird, you'll want to read this biography about Harper Lee. It's fascinating to learn of her childhood and how some of the characters in her novel were shaped from some of the people in her youth. You might know that Truman Capote was a childhood friend, and in this biography, we see how much she really helped him in his research on writing In Cold Blood. Harper Lee was a very fiesty and independently minded young woman who was often isolated because of these qualities.
