She made me very upset when she told me to quit reading, but reading is what me and Atticus do. I was basically born reading. she upset me again when she tried to be generous and give Walter a quarter. When I tried to explain that Walter will not take money from you, she just told me to go to the corner. When we got out for lunch, I was going to make him pay for making us get off on the wrong foot. WHen Jem pulled me away, he invited Walter over for lunch! I was getting mad again at lunch, because Walter was putting too much molasses on his food. Calpurnia was getting very mad at me, so she called me into the kitchen and tried to teach me a lesson.

Thankfully we make it back to the house without getting in trouble.
30: The Knot-Hole
31: In the past week, every-time Jem and I pass the knot-hole in the tree by the Radley's home, we find something different. I feel as if Boo is leaving us gifts. While the week went on we found twine, two bars of soap with mine and Jem's sculpture on them, two pennies, a spelling bee medal, and the best items was a pocket watch and a knife. Unfortunately, Mr. Radley put cement in the hole, because he said the tree was dying.

42: Church with Calpurnia
43: Calpurnia took Jem and I to he church called First Purchase. Why we had to go to church with Cal is because Atticus had to go on a business trip. I even had to wear a dress to church! When we arrived to church there was one lady that did not want us there, because we were not Negroes. Her name was Lulu. Rev. Sykes very well accepted us though. Calpurnia's son Zeebo even leads the music. Rev. Sykes took up an offering during service to donate to Helen
44: Dill Ran Away
45: When I was going to crawl into bed, after a brawl with Jem, I stepped on something that felt like a snake, so i screamed! A moment later out crawls Dill. Dill had ran away from home, because he did not feel loved by his mother and new dad. So Dill stills some money and jumps on a train to Maycomb. Atticus told Miss Rachel about Dill being here and she got him some food. Dill stayed the rest of the summer.
46: There's Trouble At The Court House
47: Last night Jem, Dill, and I went searching for Atticus. Atticus told us that he was leaving, but didn't tell us where. We found him sitting outside of the courthouse reading the paper. Right about the time we were going to leave, an angry mob appears and threatens Atticus with getting Tom. We ran over to Atticus to see what was going on and I noticed Mr. Cunningham. I gave him a lecture and told him to give Walter a helllo from me.
48: Tom's Trial
49: Tom's trial was very unfair under every aspect. As Jem, Dill, and I sat in the colored section of the courthouse with Rev. Sykes. Mayella, Tate, Atticus and Tom took the stage. This case was very emotional and intense. After the case was ended Tom was considered guilty. I am very confused about the decision the judge made. All of us thought Tom won the case.
50: Tom's Death
51: When Atticus walks in the door early from lunch. He heads straight to Calpurnia. The news he told her was that Tom was dead! We were told that Tom was shot 17 times, trying to escape. The guards warned him to stop, but he kept on running, so they shot him to death.
52: Pageant Night!
53: Jem takes me to my pageant. On the way to the pageant, that dumb kid named Cecil Jacobs scared us. Before the show Cecil and I walked around playing the games. When the show started I was a ham and Cecil was a cow. When it was my time to come out on stage, I fell asleep in my costume. When the pageant was over, I was told that I ruined it. Jem and I waited for the crowed to calm down then we left. On our way home something extravagantly terrible happened.......
54: The Attack of Bob Ewell
55: On the way home from the pageant, Jem heard a noise that scared him. He thought he heard footsteps, so he told me to be quite. At first I thought it was Cecil, so I started calling him names and making fun of him, but we found no answer. It was Bob Ewell... Jem told me to run, but with that big costume on, i tripped. When I was on the ground, I heard Jem and Bob into a brawl. I got up and ran to the street so I could see, and I saw someone carrying Jem home. I seriously though Jem was dead.
56: Hello Boo... , Bob's Dead
57: I immediately arrived back at the house, and Aunt Alexandria helped me out of my costume. Atticus called Dr. Reynolds and Heck Tate. I wasn't really sure what happened. I told Officer Tate all I knew. Officer told us that Bob was lying under the oak tree with a kitchen knife in his ribs. When I found out who brought Jem home, I was in shock that it was Boo. I finally found out who made our lives such a mystery. Boo is the one who killed Bob. The news about Jem was that his arm was broken very badly.
58: As I walked Boo home
59: As I walked Boo home later that night, we both walked up to the door. Once he closed the door, I turned around and saw the world from his perspective. I thought of all the events that had happened over the years and I was in amazement. That perspective is something I will never forget.
