    1. This biography is an Up Close Biography , a part of the Viking Books series for young adult readers it was published in 2009 After getting a forthright response from Harper Lee about her not granting interviews, author Kerry Madden chose the route of researching all things connected to Harper Lee in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, as well as her other home, New York, and also many family members, neighbors and close friends The finished product is a thoroughly interesting look at the autho [...]

    2. Harper LeeThe magnificent woman story, Harper Lee, was incredible well written by the talented and gifted author, Kerry Madden First of all, this marvelous book mainly focuses on the life of Harper Lee and how the experiences she went through changed her life into being a famous author Harper Lee, or, Nelle, was born in Monroeville, Alabama on April 28, 1926 During Harper s young years, she loved stomping through flowerbeds, shot rubber bands, and she also once broke a boy s front tooth Lee also [...]

    4. Much of Harper Lee s childhood is similar to that of her character Scout Just like Scout, Lee was a tomboy who called her father by his first name Lee s father, like Atticus, was a lawyer who once represented a black man Lee s own childhood friend Truman Capote, who also became a famous author inspired Scout and Jem s neighborhood friend, Dill After laying the foundation of Lee s background, the remainder of this biography focuses on key events throughout Lee s adult life Later topics include Le [...]

    5. I ve always admired Nelle Harper Lee simply because of her masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird But now I have a bunch of reasons to call this woman truly exceptional She grew up in a family that prized education her 98 year old sister still practices law , and went to college at a time when most female students were just there to catch a husband Uninterested in dating or makeup, she made a name for herself in college academics and writing, flirted with law school, wound up moving from rural Alab [...]

    6. Biographies of Harper Lee are challenging since she grants no interviews, but Madden did extensive research, including three trips to the small Alabama town where Lee grew up Madden s whole research process, recently discussed on a children s lit listserv, was fascinating This biography would be best suited for middle high school students who have read To Kill a Mockingbird or seen the movie and want to find out about the story behind the story and people that inspired the characters I learned q [...]

    7. This book was a pleasure to read I have always been fascinated by Harper Lee and her friendship with Truman Capote It is amazing to me the two friends could produce such different books as To Kill a Mockingbird and In Cold Blood I couldn t sleep well for weeks after reading In Cold Blood Since we now live in a world of explicit crime detail, I have often wondered if it would affect me as deeply today as it did then, but I digress This book is easy to read, full of fun anecdotes and well research [...]

    8. Even though this was classified as a biography for young adults, I feel strongly that anyone interested in the subject would thoroughly enjoy this insightful project Not only does it offer a look into Harper Lee herself but also the real town of Monroeville that served as the fictional setting of Maycomb As part of the Southeastern Literary Tourism Initiative, I developed an online tourism guide for this book with Kerry s help that offers photos, an excerpt, and tourism links for those intereste [...]

    9. One of the best biographies I ve ever read A surprisingly intimate portrait of an author who hasn t given an interview since 1964 Madden faced quite a challenge and wrote a biography that is full of interesting facts, quotes and stories To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books, so I was happy to discover new information about the book, its creation, the film which followed it and, of course, the author What fascinated me the most was how Madden always insisted that Lee is not a recluse [...]

    10. Madden tells readers right off the bat that she was unable to penetrate the cone of privacy in which Nelle Harper Lee chooses to live, and does a good job telling Lee s story without access to Lee This book s strength is giving a context for the author s life story without wandering into supposition or presumption Madden s writing captures the spirit of the young Nelle and keeps the life story moving.Whether TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD fans are young or older, they will have certain questions that may [...]

    11. This was so good I have never read TKAM, but I went right out and picked it up I feel I already know the characters Ms Lee worked hard on this book and although we don t have any books published by her I feel she is out there still writing and is an inspiration to us all.Way to go Kerry for keeping this author realistic and interesting even though she wouldn t give an interview seems like she has said all she wants to say on this topic.

    12. I thought this was well put together.For an author as private as Nelle Harper Lee, it is a daunting task to make a true and interesting biography Although this was written for younger readers, other than a few terms being defined, it was a pleasant read for the likes of me.I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know about Harper Lee, but doesn t like or have the time to delve into a larger volume.

    13. 4.5 really nicely written and gave a lot of insight about To Kill a Mockingbird which i really liked its concise but gives detailed info about Lee s life chronologically not including her death because it was published before Lee died

    14. Harper Lee by Kerry Madden was an enjoyable read I learned about Ms Lee, and had time and reasons to appreciate the extraordinary person I believe her to be What a gift MS Lee has given us through her books.

    15. This is a great book For doing a biography on someone who is very private, the author did a great job ferreting information An informative book, easy to read I think any teenager s interest would be maintained if they had to read this book.

    16. If you want a quick read to learn about Harper Lee, read this book written for middle and upper school students Since Harper Lee doesn t grant interviews, the story revolves around interviews of people who knew her.

    17. With this biography and Charles Shields MOCKINGBIRD, readers will have information about Nelle Harper Lee than has ever before been available This is a readable bio of the fiercely private author of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.

    18. I couldn t put this book down Before reading it, I thought I knew a lot about Harper Lee But the way Madden tells the story that s what it seems like a story Fun to read, interesting, informative, well researched.

    19. I feel a little guilty reading about an author who didn t particularly want her biography written during her lifetime It seems she is an interesting character Her book is one of my favorites I wish she had kept writing

    20. This is a book for younger teen readers and would make a good addition to classes reading To Kill a Mockingbird Now it needs an extra chapter or two to tie in comments about Go Set a Watchman.

    21. This is a slower read that is going to take me much longer than a normal book due to the fact that this is my lunch book for at work P

    22. A fascinating biographical look at Harper Lee and the writing of To Kill a Mockingbird If you loved the book, don t miss this behind the scenes account.

    23. Another classic I hadn t read As this is such an important book, I now want to hear all of the review details to fully understand all of the aspects.

    24. A good introduction to Harper Lee s life for young adults Not as in depth as Charles Shields s Mockingbird, but interesting and informative nevertheless.

    25. One Sentence Review This book just slipped through the cracks for me, but I honestly believe it s one of the strongest biographies I ve ever read for kids.
