To Kill a Mockingbird
“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee is a story of kids who live a normal life in Maycomb but soon their life takes a turn for the worst when their father takes a case for an innocent black man being accused of rape. “Dill?” “Mm?” “Why do you reckon Boo Radley’s never run off?” Dill took a long sigh and turned away from me. “Maybe he just doesn't have anywhere to run off to…” This story tells the hardship of supporting something or someone that no one else supports. Basically, everyone in Maycomb doesn't support the African Americans and during the trial, they don’t support Tom and Atticus during his case. Only a few people understood that they knew Tom was innocent but the other didn't. In the end, every problem that was solved and they went back to a normal life with one new detail.
