Response to To Kill a Mocking Bird

The book To Kill a Mocking bird is about a young girls growing up in a rural town called Maycomb in Kanas. it's mostly about her "adventures" and the law suit of a black man accused of raping a young woman. in this response I'll be doing a character analysis 

in the beginning of the book it's hard to tell if scout the main character is a girl or boy. she hangs out with her brother a lot. one time in the beginning of the book her brother Jem says to her "scout stop acting like such a girl. the relationship between Jem and scout is very strange. she looks up to him but at the same time she gets angry at him easily. she's always describing him in a loving way and that proves that she loves any way.

another character that scout has a strange relationship with is Jem's best friend Dill. she acts differently towards him then the way she acts toward Jem. she is more friendly to him. scout acts less disrespectfully to Dill. I think she likes Dill more then Jem. 

the last character relationship that scout has that is very interesting is the relationship between Scout and Aticus. aticus is scouts father. she has the most respect for her father. in one chapter scout doesn't want to go to school so she makes a deal with her father who convinces her that she needs to. scout calls him "sir" not father and always calls him by his first name. in one chapter scout almost gets into a fight at school because one of the other kids says to her "your father defends niggers". she has so much respect for him that instead of fighting she walks away because that's what her dad told her to do.

in conclusion the different relationships that scout has with these characters really defines scout as a character
