Scout and she is not only the main character of the story but she is also the narrator.
Scout lives with her father Atticus,brother Jem,and cook Calprina in Maycomb,

always taught her to be herself and dont care about what society thinks of her.
Growing up with her brother and father Scout learns that not everyone in the
world sees everyone else as equal and should be trated the same like she does.Instead

and eventhough he is a good lawyer what makes this case even tougher is that it
involves a black man who was accused of rape and coming out of this case alive and a winner would be a hard feat. The biggest lesson learned by Scout is that never look down on yourself according to what society thinks of you, because you are great no matter what skin color you are.

to attack Scout he is stopped and killed by Boo (Boo Radley). I view this as an important event because this shows how ignorant people can be when it comes down to
someones skin color. If Boo had not com…
