I read this book when I was sixteen years old. It was part of our drama class. At the time I was living in South Africa and had first hand experience of what it was like living in a country that had such racial segregation. This book really struck a chord with me. The author, Harper Lee, uses memorable characters to explore Civil Rights and racism in the segregated southern United States in the 1930s. Told through the eyes of Scout Finch, you learn about her father Atticus Finch, an attorney who hopelessly strives to prove the innocence of a black man unjustly accused of rape and about Boo Radley, a mysterious neighbour who saves Scout and her brother Jem from being killed.
This is one of my favourite books!
