1: My name is Jeremy Atticus "Jem" Finch. I grew up in Maycomb County.
2: I'm the sporty type and want to play football when I grow up.
3: My little sister is Jean Louise, but everybody calls her Scout. I feel like everyday she acts more and more like a girl, but I still love her.
4: This is my father, Atticus Finch. | He's a lawyer for Maycomb County. | I respect him more than anyone else and always do what he tells me.
5: An important moment in my life was the Tom Robinson trial. Atticus was appointed to defend him. I was sure that we were going to win, but we did not. It really disappointed me.
6: On Halloween, Scout and I were attacked by Bob Ewell. Luckily, Boo saved us. | He brought me back home, but not before Bob broke my arm.
7: Scout and I found a lot of cool things, like a ball of twine and a broken pocket watch, in a tree at the Radley place. Mr. Nathan filled the hole with cement because he said that the tree was dying, but I asked Atticus and he said it looked fine. I think that Mr. Arthur is trying to keep Boo inside and that really makes me really sad for him.
8: After trying to see Boo Radley, my jeans got stuck in the fence and I had to leave them. When I came back the next day, the holes were sewn and the jeans were nicely folded on the fence like they were waiting for me.
9: “That's what I thought, too," he said at last, "when I was your age. If there's just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other? Scout, I think I'm beginning to understand something. I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this time... it's because he wants to stay inside" (Lee 304).
