Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)
Told through the voice of Harper Lee's heroine, the young and impressionable Scout Finch, this tale of growing up in the racially-charged deep southern United States offers many lessons on friendship, community, justice and acceptance.
"They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions... but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience".
