Her parents were separated at the time, so she was stressed out about that, while her mom was sick with cancer. She explains that that she felt empty and angry, and she was terribly mean to her stepbrothers, stepmother, and father. Although this type of action is very understandable, it doesn’t make it right for her to act horribly towards her father’s family. This evidence illustrates the theme life is tough, because right after her mother died, she had to go move in with her father, which probably reminded her of her parents divorce.
Following the incident, she watched her mother fell apart “piece by piece” and get distressed when cooking, with her knife “poised in the air over half-chopped vegetables” and becoming “a living ghost”. Kelly and Lena are both placed in difficult positions at a young age. Both of them came from unhappy families and hence, the song matches Lena’s story well because both protagonists share similar

In To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee shows off the theme of coming of age pretty well. The book tells a story of a young girl 's life and how some things aren’t as you imagine them. She always thought one of her neighbors was a creepy old man who never comes out of his house
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of those books that almost everyone reads at some point in their lives. Whether you've been forced to read it at school, or you've had a look because everyone's been urging you to, most people have their own personal experience of reading Mockingbird. The book is about Atticus Finch, who appears as an unconventional hero and role model due to his morality rather than his physical ability. The theme of morals is apparent throughout the whole novel, especially in relation to religion and perception of sin.

6/24, Chapter One: As the book begins, the readers are introduced to Scout, and her knowledge of Maycomb. I noticed how Scout’s narration sounded; she is telling the story as an adult but from a five year old’s point of view during the book, but her narrative included complex words such as “imprudent” (5) and “domiciled” (10), which is unlike what a child would say. Harper Lee uses the unique narration so that Scout would be able to provide background and context to Maycomb, but also so that readers would be able to see how Scout reacted and felt about the events in the book, and how it impacted her life growing up. Scout also used description and imagery as she told the story, which I found intriguing, since children don’t usually care for description and see things simplistically.

Furthermore, there was an obnoxious assumption "that all Blacks lie, that all Blacks are essentially indecent creatures". “Despite the fact that Calpurnia is a female, Aunt Alexandra neglects her great work as a result of her race” (Lee p.129). The Court trial is described by Lee with strong diction in
