I hath trode the paths of many a authors and i have now become one with the sun and am reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I have not read far but i as for what i did read this is what I took away from it.
So far, the main character Jean Louise Finch (otherwise known as Scout) and her brother Jem have been going to school. On their way to school they keep finding objects in a tree at their neighbor's house. This house is the home of the Radley's, a strange and suspicious household in their little neighborhood.
Atticus Finch, Scout's father, has also been criticized throughout the neighborhood. Atticus is a lawyer and recently took on a case defending a black man. While Scout goes to school each day she is ridiculed by her peers because of her father's clients.
And that's what's going on!
