Summary
In chapter 13 aunt Alexandra explains to Atticus that she should stay with them for a while so that the finches have a feminine influence in the house for a while. She associates with the neighbors and begins to learn about the town. She notices that each family is different and each has their own unique characteristics. She tells Atticus that he should teach the children to be proud of being a finch and to learn more about their family lifestyle, but in the end, scout just ends up crying. In chapter fourteen the court cases that Atticus is involved in begin to draw attention to scout and Jem. Scout asks Atticus what rape is and the conversation is brought into the discussion of them going to Calpurnia’s church. They are told they can’t go back. Aunt Alexandra wants Atticus to get rid of Calpurnia but he refuses. Later that night scout attacks Jem because he was annoying her. Atticus breaks up the fight. They find dill hiding underneath scout bed. He has run away from home because nobody paid attention to him. Atticus sends Jem to get him food while he tells dills aunt next-door. In chapter fifteen, a week later it almost time for Atticus’s trial. Talk of a lynch mob circulates and Atticus goes to protect tom at the jail. A mob comes and the children sneak out to see what happens. Atticus breaks up the group with the help of scout. Carter LeiLei2
