All of a sudden, Scout and Jem need to endure a blast of racial slurs and abuse on account of Atticus ' part in the trial. Amid this time, Scout has an extremely troublesome time limiting from physically battling with other kids, an inclination that gets her into a bad situation with her Aunt Alexandra and Uncle Jack. Indeed, even Jem, the more seasoned and more prudent of the two, loses his temper a period or two. In the wake of reacting to a neighbor 's (Mrs. Dubose) verbal assault by pulverizing her plants, Jem is sentenced to peruse to her consistently after school for one month. At last, Scout and Jem take in an intense lesson about boldness from this lady.
They did laugh when he ended up telling them because they knew it was all in his head and that he didn’t have it. Another difference is that one boy wanted attention from his mother when Schotz said to his father that he could go when he was sick and didn’t make a big deal about it when he said so. The other boy realized “She had made me get into bed upstairs and then hadn’t even come up to see how I was. ’’ (A Stolen Day 307). He was talking about his mother and this makes it clear that he wanted more attention from his busy mother, which made him angry that he wasn’t getting the attention he thought he should have.
Scout then explains that the Cunninghams are hard workers, they are poor and accept no charity and they can only pay back with hickory nuts and turnip greens. Miss Caroline takes that as an insult towards Walter and punishes her by ordering her to sit in the corner while the other students laugh at her. Scout then pummels Walter to the ground in the playground for embarrassing her in the classroom, but she stopped when Jem pulls her back from Walter. Scout’s father Atticus invites Walter to dinner at the Finch house, and there Scout pulls another disrespectful move on Walter where she explains that he has “ruined” his dinner by pouring all the molasses all over his plate. Calpurnia, Scout’s cook, then calls Scout to the kitchen and says to apologize to Walter and is asked to eat in the kitchen instead of the dinner table as her
Set in rural Alabama in the 1930s, To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, focuses on the events experienced and seen through the eyes of a young girl growing up in Maycomb County, a seemingly sleepy town. Meanwhile, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part- Time Indian written by Sherman Alexie, concentrates on an adolescent boy’s experiences as a Native American living in a reservation during the early 2000s. Although the two award winning books seem to differ entirely with time period and personality of characters, it is apparent that these two books share similar concepts about community and how individualism impacts the whole.

In Roll of Thunder, the main character Cassie Logan was a 9-year-old black girl growing up in 1930’s Mississippi.

In the opening chapters of To Kill a Mockingbird one character introduced who is strikingly interesting is Calpurnia. Calpurnia is considered a mother figure for Jem and Scout; always getting onto them is they misbehave. We observe this when Scout says “she always ordering me out of the kitchen, asking why I couldn't behave as well as Jem.” Calpurnia also respects others no matter their origin or race. This is portrayed after Scout scorned Walter for pouring molasses all over his food.
Whether Scout has an issue with school or Boo is carrying an unconscious Jem home from an attack, Atticus almost always plays a critical role in these events. Atticus contributed immensely to Tom’s trial and although they lost the case, it was because of Atticus that the jury even considered Tom being innocent. “I was sittin’ there on the porch last night, waiting. I waited and waited to see you all come down the sidewalk, and as I waited, I thought, Atticus Finch won’t win, he can’t

In the beginning of the novel, Miss Caroline attempts to provide Walter Cunningham with money. Understanding the Cunningham’s position to “never [take] anything off of anybody,” Scout realizes Walter’s inability to accept Miss Caroline’s offer (30). Subsequently, when Walter pours molasses over his dinner, Scout’s own ability to understand Walter’s side surpasses her aptitude.
Dill I was hiding under Scout’s bed and waiting for them to come home. I ran away from home because i was feeling like my mother and “New father” aren’t paying attention to me They just recently got together and are always together and are never just spending time with me.
