BC: The book "to kill a mocking bird" is an excellent book to read. My favorite part of the book would have to be when Bob ewell died because of the actions he did.My least favorite part would have to be when Tom Robinson was shot 17 times. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a superior book. | Personal reflection

6: point of view | 1st person-"After all ,though" I said "he was the deadest shot in the county one time." | The Book is written in Scout's perspective.Scout is a young girl who is always following Jem and acts like a tomboy and later on she starts to act like a lady | Harper lee chose to tell this story from the perspective of a young girl "Scout finch" to show inociences of racism and harm. If we saw the view from a white man, there wouldn't be harm in racism.
7: Finally Jem and Scout are all alone. I have been following them for some time now. They haven't noticed me yet and it's 10:00 at night. As I'm listening to them talking,I'm thinking I'm finally going to get you back Atticus Finch and you cant stop me now. We're getting closer to the corner which the turn on in order to get to their house. I must make my move now in order to get my revenge on Atticus, So i grabbed my pocket knife from my front pocket and flipped it open. As soon as i opened it, I knew i made a big mistake: I was running as fast as i could and screaming "I'm going to kill you guys for what your dad did to me",because they started to sprint. Due to scout wearing that ham costume she had slowed down immensely and she was the first one that i caught up to. I tried to stab her, but with all the wire in the way i just screwed up the costume.By now Jem was on top of me screaming "get off of her you big #&$^%" but it wasn't working.so finally he just grabbed my hair and started yanking on it. then digging into my eyes and that's what made me release scout.As | soon as I let scout go I threw Jem onto the ground.I went for his neck trying to choke him because i dropped my pocket knife.Jem was just squirming on the ground. By now Jem was about to be dead I thought, but somehow he bit my hand and started to run away.I was going to run after him, but the last thing I remembered was that someone had stabbed me.
