In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, the story is told from the viewpoint of Scout, who is a young girl. Thus, the style is not told from a detailed standpoint, but rather a series of descriptions. We aren't given information as to how Scout feels (she doesn't talk about it) but rather we have to deduce how she is feeling through the actions of Scout or others around her. This allows the reader to vicariously project themselves onto the action and inside of Scout's perspective.
