NEW YORK - Fans of author Harper Lee are finally able to get their hands on a coveted copy of her second book. 

"Go Set a Watchman" has hit bookstore shelves and is expected to become a top seller quickly. 

The book was actually written before Lee's famous novel "To Kill a Mockingbird." It will allow readers to rediscover some of the same characters 20 years after the "Mockingbird" storyline, but some fans are upset after news broke that the beloved Atticus Finch is portrayed as a racist. 

The 89-year-old's lawyer discovered "Go Set a Watchman" in a safety deposit box after her family and friends began to speak about a possible second novel.
