In Search of Mockingbird is a gentle coming-of-age tale about a young girl, Erin, without a mother. She is relatable in this subtle story, and it is easy to want to follow her journey to find the one connection she has to her mother (Harper Lee, through To Kill a Mockingbird). However, despite the interesting and colorful characters she meets along the way, I never felt that this novel reached its potential. Nothing really grabbed me by the heart. There was no flavor or feel of the 80s, or any real payoff at the conclusion. It was an honorable effort at a poignant tale, but couldn't quite make me want to be In Search of Mockingbird again.
