FC: To Kill A Mockingbird
1: People often have preconceived ideas and only want to believe what they want to believe, no matter what they see or hear.

3: Boo Radley is a very quiet, reclusive character, who only passively presents himself until Jem and Scout's final interaction with Bob Ewell. It is implied during the story that Boo is a very lonely man who attempts to reach out to Jem and Scout for love and friendship. Scout finally meets him at the very end of the book, when he saves the children's lives.
