Rating: ☆☆☆☆, I love this!

Review by: Riya

What my book is about:
This book is told from the eyes of scout Finch. You learn about her father, Atticus Finch, who is a attorney who is defending a African American against false accusations. You also learn about Boo Radley a mysterious neighbor.

The character I felt most strongly about:
I feel very strongly about Atticus Finch because steered his children, Scout and Jem, on the morally correct behavior which was quiet difficult during that era.

What the main character has learned and how I think they’ll change:
Scout learns to see things from other people’s perspective. She learns that people have both good and bad qualities. She will be more understanding and will think twice before judging people.

How this book gives me hope (or not):
The fact that Scout and Jem seem to understand this and agree that injustice is wrong gives us hope for the future, since they are the next generation of Maycomb county.

How the story would be different if told by someone other than Scout:
Scout is very little and innocent because she is very young. She is very clueless and hard headed. She lives in the era where racism was a big issue. She is learning about what life is like. she is learning about reality.
