In Maycomb, Alabama, in the early days of the Great Depression, events unfold through the eyes of ten-year-old Scout Finch, growing up in a close-knit neighborhood with her older brother Jem and their summertime friend, Dill. When their father, Atticus Finch, a well-respected lawyer, defends Tom Robinson, a poor black man accused of raping a young white girl, Scout’s childhood is forever changed. She learns not only what it means to live by her own convictions, but also what it is to stand in the shoes of another person. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath comes an examination of freedom, justice, honesty, and hypocrisy.
