No mockingbird is killed in this book.
No attempt at any mockingbird's life is made in this book.
No mockingbird appears in this book.

I can see the importance of this book for time period it was published, but I can also certainly see the ideas and the language (damn, so many slurs) that don't work in our time. The book was published in the '60s, so I am sure that at this point there are tons of discussions about its themes. I don't think I would be able to do it even if I tried.
However, I would like to mention some parts that I liked. I am really impressed with how Lee captured the voice of a child, it felt pretty real. The last three chapters of the book were probably my favorite, they worked for me on an emotional level, but also it was nice to see how everything came together in the end.
Spoiler Arthur, my beloved
