He is a Cuningham, ma'am. He and his family are too poor to pay you back, so you are shaming him.
A Little TOO Defensive
That isn't true and you better stop it this instant!
Your daddy is nothing but a n'lover!
"Our mother died when I was two, so I never felt her absence...Atticus met her when he was first elected to the state legislature."(Lee 7)
Scout vs. Jem: The Never-Ending Battle
What is wrong with you Scout?
"'If I could have explained these things to Miss Caroline, I would have saved myself some inconvenience and MIss Caroline subsequent mortification, but it was beyond my ability to explain things as well as Atticus, so I said, 'You're shamin' him, Miss Caroline...'" (Lee 28)
Afraid of 'Boo' Radley?
"'Just what I said. Grandma says it's bad enough you all run wild, but now he's turned out a nigger-lover we'll never be able to walk in the streets of Maycomb'...'He is not!' I roared. 'I don't know what you're talking about, but you better cut it out this red hot minute!'" (Lee 110)
The character, Scout, is a curious person, with flaws that define her.
"'See there?' Jem was scowling triumphantly. 'Nothin' to it. I swear, sometimes you act so much like a girl it's mortifyin'."(Lee 50)
"Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that's why his hands were bloodstained – if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time. "(Lee 16)
Scout, the protagonist of the story, is an energetic and busy girl. She has many personalities and flaws that make her who she is. All of the people around her influence her in many ways, like Jem and 'Boo' Radley.
