To Kill A Mockingbird

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

This was my favorite book growing up because I so identified with the main character and narrator, Scout. I admired the father, Atticus Finch, the lawyer, the moral hero, the protagonist and the father we wish we all had.
The book dealt with serious issues of rape and racial inequality with warmth and humor viewed from the observations of a 6 year old girl. It had many overtones that emphasized tolerance and prejudice although the primary themes involved the destruction of innocence and racial injustice.
To Kill A Mockingbird is so symbolic to the story because who would want to kill a mockingbird when all he wants to do is to sing all the time and never stop….Unfortunately, there are a few mocking birds who have been destroyed in this novel.

Here is my brainstorming:

Boo Radley
mockingbird
forest
wooded area
vines
trees
leaves
jail
courthouse
yellow/black
prison colors
children
innocence
torn pants
overalls
Ham costume
fire burning
Gothic tone
dark
windy
prison fence
lynching
trial
danger
sad
sheriff
