I want to introduce a book whose title is “To Kill the Mockingbird”. The author of this book is Harper Lee. The mockingbird in the book means that the man who is willing to help others who are in trouble. They never do harmful things to others and we should not hurt them. The main character in the book is Atticus Finch. He is a lawyer and he has two children whose names are Scout Finch and Jem Finch. Atticus defends Tom Robinson who is accused of raping Mayella Ewell in a trial. Although Atticus tries his best to help Tom, the judge still thinks Tom is guilty. At last Tom was killed because he tries to escape. Mayella Ewell’s father dislikes Atticus because he helps Tom and Tom is a black man.

Tom Robinson is a black man and he never does bad things to others. He is accused of raping Mayella Ewell and Atticus helps him to get rid of charges. Although he fails to do this, he tells his children” Keep fighting even you know might lose.” Unfortunately Tom Robinson was killed because he tries to escape. He is a mockingbird because he just tries his best to help Mayella, but she frames him up. Boo Radely is another mockingbird in the book. He is thought as a weird man by Scout and his brother, but actually he is a kind and helpful man. He makes toys for these children and help them to be out of danger. Like the book says on page 351”Still but for a man breathing heavily, breathing heavily and staggering. I thought he went to the tree and leaned against it. He coughed violently, a sobbing, bone-shaking cough.” It shows that Boo is trying his best to help these two children. The mockingbird means that a man who is ready to help others and never do harmful things to others. In my opinion, we should learn to help others who are in trouble and even we are not ready to help others, we shouldn’t do something to hurt others. We shouldn’t have racialism either. In the book, one of the reasons that Tom was charged is that he is a black man. Even a white man may also do bad things. Everyone is equal in the world, we should treat everyone
