To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

For my eighth-grade english class I was required to read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and I’m glad I did. It’s a classic story that educates readers about racial animosity in the 1930s. Harper Lee perfectly used metaphors, along with foreshadowing, to portray the story. In particular, she uses the metaphor “it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” to foreshadow the injustice upon Tom Robinson. The beginning of the novel starts a little slow, but it most definitely picks up as the trial against Tom Robinson starts. The story was beautifully written, although it was slightly hard to follow at times. The plot was woven together wonderfully, as Harper Lee had a reason behind everything she wrote. All in all, I would rate To Kill a Mockingbird a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
