Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American ReadHarper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatredOne of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

"Essential book in topics of revolutionary American literature."
"I read this book for English class, but I really enjoyed it. In my opinion, it gives you a good insight on what racism was like back then, and you can tell how far we’ve come now. I don’t think I’d read it again since it’s pretty long, but if I ever forgot what happened, then I’d surely go back to it."
"This was the first big chapter book I read on my own with my mom, we would take turns reading it every night. I was really young especially for a topic so sensitive and heartbreaking, however I think this book has a lot to do with who I am today and the way I see the world. I know most people who have read this, read it in high school when they were already burnt out but I just want to highly recommend this as a re-read with open eyes to enjoy the work of art that it is."
