by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic American literature book about two white children who have to overcome obstacles and deal with a prejudice society in the South during the 1930s. In this book, both children must learn to understand society when they are exposed to a case where their father, a lawyer, is defending a black man against a white man. During the case, the children learn not to prejudge others when they discover more about their neighbor (and outcast), Boo Radely.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorites, because you not only get an interesting and mysterious story from a child's perspective, but also a book full of commentary on racism and prejudice

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery, and an interesting story about racism in the South. If you like American literature, you will love To Kill a Mockingbird, as Harper Lee does a great job of depicting the South and the issues that are taking place.
