When Scout's father, a lawyer, agrees to defend a black man against an accusation by a white girl, he must battle the prejudice of the whole town.

Beautiful Copy of a Classic--Stick with Alibris
I wanted to gift my wife a 50 th Anniversary reissue of To Kill a Mockingbird . I usually use Alibris but for convenience ---I elected to buy a copy from another online vendor described as in"very good" condition and pictured with a dustcover. Book arrived in horrible shape--no dustcover, multiple underlined passages and dog-eared pages and pages from another book stuffed into the book. Took several weeks to get a refund--even then there were out of pocket costs for mailing it back. Purchased this perfect "brand new" copy from Alibis -arrived in pristine condition.
Though I have used Alibris for this type of purchase about 95% of the time now it is 100%.
