First section part B
Scout likes to fight but Atticus tells her not to fight. She loves Atticus reading to her. She learned to read and write before she went to school, it seems like she taught herself to read and Cal taught her how to write.
The turning point is when Scout find out that Atticus is defending Tom Robertson at school. The story shifted when people started to call Atticus names for defending a African American. She notices when she hears a lot more people talking about the upcoming trial.
The new tone of the story is about the Tom Robertson trial. Scouts focus is trying not to fight anyone to defend Atticus and her personality is a little more serious. Scout is more mature and has more self control. People are showing more racism.
