Every Person Is Equal

It seems silly that this remains an issue today, but unfortunately there are still many prominent debates about equality. To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee's classic novel, is arguably not a conventional piece of YA literature because of its many dark themes. However, it features a young girl observing the actions of her admirable father in the face of despicable circumstances in her southern hometown, so we'll consider it adolescent literature. Scout's observations about equal rights in the novel are particularly relevant today, and many adults could learn a lesson or two from To Kill a Mockingbird.
