Scout Finch is a young girl who lives with her older brother, Jem, and her father, Atticus.
Being a kid, Scout has the simple tasks of a child, to have fun and to stay out of trouble.
I also felt bad for Boo, having to deal with all the misconceptions about him made by Scout, Jem and many others in the town.
It was a bit surprising to hear someone who was earlier described as a “...malevolent phantom...” later describe as timid and child-like. Aristotle once said "the law is reason free from passion" and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird tells the story of what happens when the two are introduced, at the expense of justice.
One is of how he stabbed his dad with a pair of scissors; another tells how he was locked up in the courthouse basement.
Even with such a grisly initial perception at the beginning of the book, Jem and Scout gradually see Boo as a neighbor they can trust.
The novel illustrates the failures of the Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird During the 1930s, during the time when the novel was set, society was very different to what it is now.
"To Kill a Mockingbird" is Harper Lee's story about life in a small town in Southern America during the 1930s.
This new outlook first begins when we find out Boo had put a blanket over Scout’s shoulders when she and Jem stood outside in the cold as their neighbor’s house burned down.
Their perception is changed further when they start finding objects in a tree from Boo.
