S: The Adventures of Scout Finch
1: My name is Jean Louise Finch, but everyone calls me Scout. I am nine years old. I live in Maycomb, Alabama. My best friends are my brother, Jem, and my future husband, Dill. He said that once he has enough money together, he'll come back to Maycomb and marry me.
2: I am a big tomboy. I hate wearing dresses and acting girly. (ugh) I guess I'll have to get used to it although I hope I don't have to be a girl too soon. I want to enjoy my childhood a while longer. | Younger Me
3: Atticus | My father's name is Atticus. Jem and I have called him by his first name since I can remember although I'm not sure why. | Atticus is a good man. He has been the best of fathers to Jem and I through the years. He has taught us valuable lessons and things about people that every child should learn (but not everyone is taught the way we are). He has a special place in my heart.
4: Jem | Jem can be a pest. Even so, Jem is very good to me. He looks out for me when others can't. We spend a lot of time together (for good or for bad) and I am thankful for it. Being brother and sister makes both of us stronger.
5: There are some things in my life that I will never forget. One of those things is walking home from a Halloween pageant. Jem and I (me in my ham costume dressed for the pageant) were attacked by Bob Ewell just past the Radley place. We somehow got away, but apparently Bob fell on his knife and died that night. He had sworn to get revenge on Atticus for going against him in the Tom Robinson trial. I guess he planned on killing us. Ahhh, I shudder at the thought. I am just glad that we got away with only a broken arm. Poor Jem. | Assaulted Ham
6: Jem, Dill and I were wanting to do something. We got out the tire and I Decided to show Dill how it was done. I got in and rolled down the hill. The only problem was that I went all the way to the Radleys' porch. I was so scared that i could not move. Jem ended up having to come and get me. It was one of the scariest moments I ever experienced. | Tire Roll
7: One normal day, Jem and I were walking home from school when I spotted something white in the knothole of the Radleys' tree. It turned out to be two soap figures that looked exactly like the two of us. Before I remembered that I don't believe in voodoo, I threw them down and screamed. | Soap Doll | When I recovered, Jem had picked them up and dusted them off. We ended up taking the figures home, but it's a little creepy don't you think? Soap carvings of us that just happened to be sitting there in a tree? That's not an everyday occurrence.
8: Ah, I love that tree house out back. Jem, Dill, and I have worked on that tree house for quite a few summers now. We always have new ideas to make it better. Last summer, we added a rope ladder, 2 windows, and a flag. This summer, Dill and i are thinking about adding a second story. Jem can help, but he has gotten too big to actually use the tree house. That's a shame. I loved when the three of us could relax in the safety of our tree house. The three of us can still hang out, but we'll have to find a new place to meet | Tree House
9: "Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough." (279.31.30-32)
10: Scout said this line toward the end of the book and I think it pretty well summarizes a lot of it. This quote has deeper meaning. This just shows how Scout has matured through the book. She has learned the ways of people with the human condition. Having the knowledge she has now will help her all through her life.
