“To kill a mockingbird” is the memory of Scout’s childhood in Alabama; the beginning of school, the days spent playing with Jem and the friend Dill and the kind and reassuring presence of Atticus, her father.
These are the years when the children try to meet Boo Radley, a neighbor who did not go out his home, and when Atticus has the hard task to defend a Negro man accused of raping a white girl in a racist Alabama.
The events are narrated using Scout point of view, and thanks to her naivety the injustice and the hypocrisy of Maycomb folks are enhanced.
I read it some years ago when I was a child and I liked the story, now I reread it as an adult and I appreciated also its style and narrative structure and I was reminded that

“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.”
