Holden is basically saying here that he left his old school not because he is not smart but it was because he could not stand the people there. Holden always blames his surroundings but never once does he blame himself for flunking all the classes and getting kicked out of the schools. Holden also blames others for his relationship troubles. When Sally rejected Holden’s proposal, Holden blamed Sally for flirting with some other guy. For both of the incidents described, Holden blamed others for them and he did not think that either of them was his fault.
He describes his neighborhood without use of any adjectives that express emotion about how he feels about the place. The lack of emotion suggests that they have done this walk before and they have grown indifferent to their surroundings. Another example is at the high point of the story when he and his brother are getting beat up, “I watched the others take turns on my brother, this terror of a brother, and he doubled over, had blood and spew on his shirt, and tears down his face. I wanted to do something, but they held me and I just looked on.” Terror of a brother implies that Rano is a bully himself. Watching this must’ve been hard on Luis, but instead he does nothing.
He was raised as a hard worker and was trained to snitch on his family, classmates, and coworkers. Shin was beaten and always hungry. This was life in Camp 14, one of the worst of all camps. A part of the book that was a big surprise to me would be the disconnect Shin had with his family. Shin was the cause of his mother's and brother's death; but yet he felt no remorse.

Mr. Van Daan did not care enough to make sure his son Peter was living the best he could. The selfish side of Mr. Van Daan came out in the act where he got caught in the middle of the night stealing the already minimal food that they had in the kitchen. “Mrs. Frank: Your own son Peter… I’ve heard him moan in his sleep he’s so hungry… you steal food that should go to them.” (383) Mrs. Frank wanted him to feel bad for taking the food that could have gone to the starving children. Mr. Van Daan thought of his own needs before anyone else’s, including his only

This reveals that Atticus was afraid of the group of men that were going to hang Tom Robinson. After the halloween pageant, Scout and Jem were walking back home when they got attacked by Bob Ewell. “From somewhere near by came scuffling, kicking sounds, sounds of shoes and flesh scraping dirt and roots.” (Lee 351). This scene demonstrates that Bob Ewell attacks Jem and Scout, trying to get revenge. When taking this case Atticus wasn’t aware of the consequences it will bring to him and his family.
This is what the text says happens the night of the trial. Bob Ewell was a racist, a liar, and he attempted to kill two children because their father was trying to stand up for what’s right. Even Boo Radley who stayed locked up in his house all day could tell you this much about Bob. The last reason I believe it was Boo is because Boo does all his work where nobody can see him. Like I said previously when telling about the nice things he did for the kids, he wasn’t seen.
