The beginning of To Kill a Mockingbird and the end of Harry Potter are the same story. Rowling pays tribute to several of Harper Lee’s themes. Racism and patriarchal abuse within families have catastrophic consequences. Sometimes justice is only possible by flouting the law. Empathy overcomes evil. Restraint can be the greatest bravery. And like Harper Lee, Rowling uses the naïve perspectives of a trio of children to convey her beautifully brutal story.
