Warning: This is an independent companion to To Kill a Mockingbird, meant to enhance your experience of the novel. If you have not yet bought Harper Lee's novel, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial Sidekick.
Meet Jean Louise Finch, nicknamed "Scout." Six years old at the opening of the novel, this fiery tomboy is hardly the conventional "Southern lady," a fact which occasionally gets her into trouble with the more traditionally minded members of the small town of Maycomb, Alabama. But when a black man is accused of raping a white woman and Scout's father is appointed to defend him, Scout begins to see the darker side of her pleasant little town-and to question what it means to live justly in a world torn by race and class distinctions.
One of the great classics of American literature, Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning To Kill a Mockingbird has sold millions of copies all over the world.
With this Sidekick, you'll:
• Learn what you might have missed on your first read of Lee's novel
• Discover some of the book's secret gems and underlying themes
• Explore possible alternate endings and imagine ideas for a prequel
• Spend some more time with the characters you've come to know and love, delving deep into their psyches and hidden motives
Sidekicks are entertaining and insightful reading companions, filled with delightful commentary and thought-provoking questions. Readers have raved that they "really put you in touch with the many layers of the novel," "keep you entertained even longer," and are "perfect if you want a vivid understanding of the story." Designed to be read side by side with the novels they complement, they'll give you even more reasons to love some of today's best books.
