Setting
The story takes place in Maycomb County, Alabama, USA. No time description available.

Plot
Backward and then forward: the writer told about the present condition at the beginning of story, and then continued with the sequences of events that lead to the present condition (she explained how the present condition could happen in the rest of the book).

The story is about…
The story is about a highly curious little girl named Jean Louise Finch (Scout) who lives with her father and brother in Maycomb County. Their life was as normal as other people, but everything changed when Atticus Finch, their father, was pointed to defend an innocent black man. The entire county began to mock him and his children of what their father did. When a good person is mocked of doing good things, it is as same as killing a mockingbird…
