In the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee was an amazing book that teaches one about judging by stereotypes. The book tells about Boo Radley and how he is the creepiest person in the neighborhood. through the rabid dog and harsh racist court trial with Tom this book kept a reader on their toes. In the end there is a huge turn on the story, Boo is actually really nice. Boo gives the children things throughout the whole book and the reader doesn't even notice until the end when they find out he has always been looking out for the Finch kids. Boo is not the stereotype everyone thinks he is. Which will end the book on a questioning but very happy emotion.
The trial for Tom Robinson beings the whole town is there. Becuase he was a black man Tom was accused of raping Miss Mayella. Although Atticus had very strong evidence, they lost the case and then later that night Tom was noted dead.
