FC: Mayella Ewell | My Mixbook
1: Grace Mize Tyler Malcolm
3: Hey everybody! My name is Mayella Ewell and I'm just your regular Alabama girl! I have a ton of younger siblings...ugh. I feel like i never get any attention! Oh well, that is about to change! <3
4: Me and my Daddy!
5: Grandparents | Parents | My Dad is so important to me. I mean, what would i do without him? He's the best, he doesn't make us go to school or get jobs!
6: Tom + Me :)
7: This is my friend, Tom. We are really close! He helps me around the house. He plays hard-to-get, but I think he likes me!
8: My Plan I'm going to figure out if Tom likes me or not! I'm going to invite him inside to help me with something, and then we'll get the chance to talk alone! Maybe I'll have to use some of my charm, if you know what I'm saying! A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

11: 3 | 4
12: So apparently my Daddy just didn't understand how much Tom and I love each-other. Look at Tommy's face! (He's just sweating 'cause it's hot.) Anyway, Daddy told me to tell the court that Tom had been taking advantage of me, so that way he would have to help us around the house more or something.. I'm not really sure, but it doesn't seem like a big deal to me!
13: 1- They're just asking Tom some questions! 2- Tom's just tired! 3- There he is again with his mean old lawyer, Atticus Finch 4- He was so mean! He made me cry!
14: Lately Tom's been busting up chiffarobes for firewood, since I can't do it myself!
15: I told him the hinge on our door was "broken." He just ran out on me!

18: "Friends?" (Lee 245).
19: We chose this as Mayella's quote because if she had grown up in a different environment, with friends and a better family, she wouldn't be in this courtroom trying to frame Tom. In this Mixbook, we tried to bring out more of her ordinary, naive teenage girl personality. Obviously in the book she knew what she was doing when she walked down to the courthouse. | Tyler Malcolm Grace Mize
