Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love.

(Hinton 138)”. The Socs were just a group of adolescents together for social reasons and were engaging delinquent behavior.

He said: “Atticus ain’t ever whipped me since I can remember. I wanta keep it that way”(Lee75), this shows Jem’s perseverance to perform actions that will benefit him in a positive aspect.

For example, a few years ago, I was leaving in New York city, my cousin used to wear a tight-fitting legging that outlined her curves. On the streets, a lot of men called her baby, honey, and asking her for her phone number which made her very uncomfortable. One day I told her why don’t you change your clothing? then she decided to stop wearing tight clothing, and she felt more comfortable going out without being called honey or baby by strangers.
