In the book To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee uses theme in chapter 9 to show the reader how the world isn’t fair. My quote from chapter 9 is when scout says “ ‘You ain’t fair’ I said you ain’t fair’.” (Lee 97). This quote takes place during Christmas time. Atticus, Jem, and Scout were at one of their relatives house. Scout go into a altercation with Francis because Francis called Scout a nigger lover.
