I read Harper Lees much anticipated second novel recently and wanted to return to her first novel. This book spoke the truth about racism in America and it also showed how the town lawyer lived similar to other folks in the small town unlike today when there is such a big difference in how much money people make and how they live their lives. In a small town back in the day you wanted to not act like you were different than anyone else. Atticus the lawyer said he could not live one way in town and another way at home. Atticus also said if his children did not trust him they would not trust anyone.
