Hence, Scout functions both as a curious questioner and an observer in the novel and with her questioning, Lee effectively sets the reader on the discovery of the formation and consequences of inequality. For example, after Atticus accepts Tom Robinson’s case, Scout receives appalling comments about her family from school and even from her cousins that ‘Now he 's turned out a nigger-lover we 'll never be able to walk the streets of Maycomb again.
