The message the reader is suppose to find in this book, is killing the Mockingbird, this could be done by people prejudge people in wrong ways, like the
blacks in this case Tom Robinson was accused of something he didn’t do and guilty and shot dead facing a fate he didn’t deserve, but if he had been
white it would have ended differently. People misjudge people on there mistakes and over exaggerate it like Boo, Arthur Radley, he was judged
because the he stabbed his father and he was in a gang. He was different because he didn’t like being social and people make bad lies and rumours
because of that trying to lure him out or tormenting him is wrong.
