This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, considered an American classic, was challenged and banned because of violence and its use of the N-word. To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is a story that takes place in a southern town. The main character, Scout, is a young girl whose father she calls by his name- Atticus is a lawyer. Atticus is helping a Black man named Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping a white woman. The story shows the injustice of the political system during this time, and how racism and personal opinions could easily sway the court to choose a side, even if there is no evidence. This story is unique since the court case that Atticus is fighting is told through the lens of Scout, who is only a young kid who doesn't understand a lot of what is happening.
