Where To Find It
Call number: Teen Fiction
A young girl growing up in an Alabama town in the 1930s learns of injustice and violence when her father, a lawyer, defends a black man accused of raping a white girl.
So now I am left to wonder what is the best time to read the book. How much really sinks in when you are 10 and 11, even with an adult helping you pull out important themes? What do you get from it as a high schooler? [That son is now in 10th grade, and had to do a mock trial for this year's English class. He chose Atticus Finch as their lawyer's name, because 'he's the best lawyer ever' or something along those lines.] Perhaps the best solution is to read it multiple times at many ages, viewing it through the lenses of your own different experiences.
