Harper Lee wrote the book, To Kill a Mockingbird. The book has a wonderful story of a bunch of kids growing up with their life problems. Harper Lee has also written other great novels called Love - In Other Words and Christmas to Me. Some major parts in the story were Scout, Jem, Dill, Boo Radley, and Mr. Ewell. .
Scout, Jem, and Dill are friends in Maycomb County. They love to play and do hang out together. They were always thinking of the mysterious Boo Radley. Everyone thought he was a nutcase because he never came out. They told stories about Radley behind his back. For example, Miss Stephanie tells the children that while Boo was sitting in the living room cutting a magazine, he "drove the scissors into his parent's leg, pulled them out, wiped them on his pants, and resumed his activities." After the children hear these stories they assume he is an evil person. Gradually they assume more about Boo because he never plays outside or with anyone so the children are not convinced otherwise. Then Boo Radley becomes a game for the kids. They start to make play-like scenarios that they play. They also made up a couple characters like Mrs. Radley. She would be a poor woman with missing teeth, hair, and right forefinger. But in reality they did not know Boo Radley. He stayed inside his house and remained by himself. At the end of the book, Scout finally meets Boo Radley after he helps her and Jem escape Mr. Ewell. She finds that her beliefs about him are not true. Then, she finds the sayings that the neighbors were "putting into his mouth" were not true.
One big point in this book is that it is hard to be accepted when you are not seen. It is hard to know someone and their stories when you have not seen them. It is not good to accuse people when you don't know them. .
Another big point in this book is that we all should love each other and be friends. If we don't have a unity in our world, we would be lost.
