2: Hi, my name is Jem Luise Finch. Although everybody calls me Scout. | I get into a lot of fights in school so you better not disturb me. Even though I am a kind and nice person | "I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that's why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with." I don't want to use the outfits Aunt Alexandra gives me since they make me look like a women .

3: This is Jem Finch, my brother. He is 10 years old, I am 4 years younger than him. He lives with me al Maycomb, Alabama with Atticus (my father) and Calpurnia (the cook). He is sometimes very nice to me although sometimes I fight with him. Jem, Dill and I want Boo Radley to get out of his house.

4: This is Dill. His real name is Charles Baker Harris. He lives in Meridian, Missisipi. He is Jem's best friend. He is also secretly in love with me. | Jem is mutually fascinated with Boo Radley and has a multitude of crazy ideas to bring him out of his house. | To Scout

5: This is Atticus Finch, my father. He is one of the most prestige lawyers of Maycom & my hero. People bullied Jem and I by calling our dad "nigger lover". | Dad said "nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don't mean anything – like snot-nose. It's hard to explain – ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It's slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody."

6: Calpurnioa is the motherly figure in Jem and my life, since our mother died when I was 2 years old. It was nice to go with Calpurnia to the black Church and met Reverend Sykes. | Even though it was difficult to adapt our first day, Lela said "You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here – they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?" this annoyed me but overall the black community was very nice to us

7: I love reading. I have been reading since I can remember. | I was surprised that our teacher didn't let me read in class, since the teachers were advised to teach in a different way. | MY FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL | Today, Walter Cunningham didn't bring his lunch so the teacher lends him one quarter, I tell her that he is poor and that he cannot payback. | The teacher get angry and calls me infront on the room and hits me with a ruler.

8: This is Atticus & Tom Robinson at court. Atticus has to defend Tom because he has been accused of raping a girl. | EventhoughYou ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here – they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?"

9: After School started Jem and I found stuff in a tree in the Radley yard. We found a watch and a knife, a package of gum, a spellin' medal, and a ball of grey twine.

10: Today it was Christmas day and dad gave us as a present to Jem and I, it was an air-gun, it was cool to shot at cans and a passin' bird, but we wouldn't shoot no mockingbirds because they sing lovely.

11: One day a mad dog appears wondering around the main street towards the Pinches' house. Calpurnia calls Atticus. | The sheriff asks atticus to shoot the dog . To my amazement Atticus shoots the dog and hits him with the first shoot even though the dog is at a considerable distance.
