Sometimes when a person is misunderstood, the person ends up being the best role model a kid could have. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are many people that are misunderstood, but to Jem and Scout they are the best role models. Tom Robinson, Boo Radley, and Mr. Dolphus Raymond are misunderstood by the community. As the Finch’s get to know these misunderstood people and see things from their perspective, they start to realize that they are good people. Tom Robinson is misunderstood by the community, but not to the Finch’s and a few other people in the community.

Once described as a “malevolent phantom”(9) who's property was never dared to be stepped on, is now the friendly neighbor who has gifted them little trinkets. "I sometimes felt a twinge of remorse, when passing by the old place, at ever having taken part in what must have been sheer torment to Arthur Radley - what reasonable recluse wants children peeping through his shutters, delivering greetings on the end of a fishing-pole, wandering in his collards Pelteku 3 at night”(278)? Empathizing with Boo Radley is where we could successfully compare her
To begin with, Boo Radley saved Jem and Scout. Boo has no friends because of his life of isolation however Jem and Scout are the closest thing to friends that Boo has. Scout is unsure for quite a while about Boo but later knows he’s good.

His appetite was appalling, and he told me so many times to stop pestering him,” so she did but didn’t exactly know why he was acting this way.

To explain, he doesn’t want to play with Scout so he stays in his room all the time and as Calpurnia says he is going to do what boys do now.
