What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

Quotes from This Book

  • “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”
  • “Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”
  • “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
  • “As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash”
  • “Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
