Mockingbird written by Harper Lee relates the experiences of Scout Finch and her brother Jem in the fictitious town of Maycomb, Alabama. Their father, Atticus raised his children with the help of the close-knit community of neighbors. Scout and Jem understand the gentle architecture of their town except for Boo their neighbor, who never leaves his house. Scout is a tomboy trying to make sense of a world that says she must act like a lady, a brother criticizing her for acting like a girl and a father who accepts her as she is.

Soon after the trial Atticus reports that Tom was killed in an escape attempt.
As things settle down and the story draws to a close Bob decides to fulfill his threats promise. On their way home from a High School Pageant, Scout and Jem are attacked!
