C. Begining:

Scout, the main character and narrorator of the story, Jem, her brother, and Dill,

their neighbor friend that visited every summer, loved to act out stories they knew. They

did all kinds of stories like Tarzan and Dracula. Signaling the end of summer and the

absence of Dill, the school year began. Scout started school, having a very rough first day.

The days flying by, the school year passed quickly for Scout and Jem. Looking forward to

seeing Dill again, they found the summer fast aproaching. Begining to play their game as

soon as possible, they grew tired of acting out the same old stories, wanting to do

something new and exciting. Jem came up with an idea, playing Boo Radley. The story

of Boo Radley, the neighborhood weird guy, went as follows: Boo going slightly crazy,

stabbed his father in the leg with a pair of scissors. Being a small town, everyone knew the

story but no one realy knew or understood what hapened. So they began to act out the

story of Boo Radley. Scout played Mrs. Radley, Jem-Boo Radley, and Dill played Mr.

Radley. Making their scenes more complex everyday, the three entertained themselves for

most of the summer before Atticus caught them, forbidding them to play that game again.

D. Two Characters:

Scout, the main character, is a tomboy. Knowing she can do anything her brother,

Jem, can do she is confident and able to stand up for herself. She never let anybody push

her around, for instance, when Walter Cunninghum, refusing to take the money from Miss

Caroline, accidentally got her in trouble she beat him up. The other main character is Jem.

Wanting to get Boo Radley to come out, he goes to all kinds of lengths to acheive his

goal. Like losing his pants over the fence trying to sneak over to Boo’s house.
