The kids play a series of games which involves another neighbour who was accused of stabbing his father with a pair of scirrors. No overt violence except for a bit of pushing, shoving, and bullying on the playground. Part of the story is about how the community copes with a shooting at Virginia Dare Middle School that took the lives of two students and one of their teachers.

It really helped me review and keep straight the facts in the novel.
This is the first time I tried taking a quiz, and I will definitely do it again with other novels in the future. TKAM by DogEluvr, January 0, 2013I actually already read the book in my English class about a month ago, and you have to admit, the begaining is kind of boring. And actually most of the book is boring. Dill returnsthe following summer, and he, Scout, and Jem begin to act out thestory of Boo Radle.
