What better way to end my junior year and start my senior year than to reflect back on freshman year. The book I want to talk about now is To Kill a Mockingbird, and more specifically how its message is still relevant today. One of the main themes of the book is not to judge a book by its cover. Boo Radley was a key part of showing this theme as many people were afraid of him and thought him a killer, but in the end Boo Radley ended up being a kind man who just didn’t like the corruption in the world. To this day there are problems within society with judging people to soon which is why this book is still so relevant. It helps teach people to keep an open mind and this is critical for highschool students as they are about to go out into a world of people they may not understand as no matter how many laws a re made in order to change the world we need a world of people open to new ideas.
