In literature characters struggle against powerful forces or obstacles that have a significant effect on them.In To Kill a Mockingbird the main character,Scout, struggles against obstacles and as a result the obstacles have a significant effect on her . The three ways that Scout overcomes the obstacles are Scout wants to see if Boo Radley is the guy that people say he is,Scout gets bullied,and finding out about Dill not going over for the summer.
Scout wants to see if Boo Radley is really the guy people say he is.The town says that Boo Radley eats cats and mices and that will kill anything or anyone that goes on his lawn.There were other rumors as well such as he had messed up teeth and was balding and that he was in his 30’s.The town also believe that he had lived in his house since he had been born.But he really is not because at the end of the story he saves her and somewhere in the book they are outside and it is cold and boo come up behind her and gives her a blanket.
another obstacle that had a significant effect on scout her getting bullied.
She is getting a lot of hate at school and she wants to fight back so bad but she has to listen to her father.They are getting all of this hate trying to help a innocent black man a girl and her father say that he tried to raped her but she was hitting on him and her father found out so he beat her and blamed it on him.So everyone in she school call her and her father a “nigger lover” so in this obstacle she is getting bullied for helping out a person and after all of this she becomes a lot stronger person then she is so if anyone trys to do this again she will be find she will not care the mean thing is that no matter who the person is never judge them until you really learn who they are and what they have done in life.
The other obstacle is that Scout just found out that Dill will not go over this summer and her father has to leave out of town for to weeks and Calpurnia is going to take them to her church for a little while and that they love it there and there so amazed that the church that they went to is letting them in with open arms and that that church is collecting money for Tom Robinson and his wife need support for his kids but right now he is in jail for accused of raping Bob Ewell’s daughter,mayella and the whole town is in a uproar over Atticus taking over the case and when they come back home from church they find that Aunt Alexandra on the porch waiting for them.
in this story Scout went through many struggles.She has gotten stronger not physically but mentally.She found out that Boo Radley is not they guy the town says he is and that you should never judge a book by its cover.
