Growing Up Lily Owens Scout Finch Growing Up Seeing How The World Is Realizing That Nobody is Perfect By Muhsin Bustillo Scout is the daughter of Atticus. She is a
tomboy, she is innocent,and doesn't realize
there are bad people in the world. She needs
to realize that there is bad in the world. Lily is the daughter of T.Ray and Deborah Owens.
She grew up in a world of despair and abuse. She
creates a fake vision of her mother and needs to
grow up to see realize that nobody is perfect. Growing up: Scout Finch
Lily Owens Scout Finch and Lily Owens are born into a world of suffering, and only by seeing the truth of the world and it's people can they survive. Scout Finch was introduced to evils of the world later in life, while Lily Owens
was born into them. "It was Jem's turn to cry. His face was streaked with angry tears. 'It ain't right
Atticus,' said Jem. ' No son, i'ts not right.'" (212 Lee) The quote above represents how Scout was shown the evils of the world. Before she
didn't think there was evil in the world because she was naive but she then noticed. Similarities
Innocent, Young, Naive,
Both Mature, Sees truth of
the world, realized not everyone
is perfect "The impact threw me backward into our lady. She crashed on the floor a second before i did. I didn't feel the pain at first, but sitting up, it slashed from from ear to my chin. He was shouting, 'How dare you leave me!" ( 244 Kidd ) This quote shows how Lily grew up with seeing the evils of the world, into at birth when she
killed her mother. She grew up with the evils, and came to seperate herself from them in her later years. In these quotes, we can see how even though both characters may have grown up in
different enviroments, though both have come to know the truths and evils of the world. Next Topic- Both Characters dealt with their problems in different ways. Lily learned
that she needs to wake up from her dream that her mom was perfect
and Scout needed to realized that not everyone was how they seemed. Both characters were living in a sort of dream state where they though the people around them were perfect. 'Hey,' Mr. Cunningham. How's your entailment getting along? Don't you remember me, Mr. Cunningham? I'm Jean Louise Finch. You brought us some hickory nuts one early morning, remember? We had a talk. I went and got my daddy to come out and thank you. I go to school with your boy. I go to school with Walter; he's a nice boy. Tell him 'hey' for me, won't you? You know something, Mr. Cunningham, entailments are bad. Entailments...Atticus, I was just saying to Mr. Cunningham that entailments were bad but not to worry. Takes a long time sometimes... What's the matter? I sure meant no harm, Mr. Cunningham. ( Lee 153 ) This quote shows how Scout is naive and didn't realize what was going on at the jail and what Mr. Cunningham was doing. she does not realize that people can be bad as she is innocent and pure. "She wasn't anything like i thought she was. i'd spent my entire life imagining all the ways she'd love me, what a perfect specimen she was. All of it was a lie. i had made her up. (Kidd 251) This quote shows how Lily realizes she was living a fantasy of her mom being perfect. When she
"wakes up" it is very shocking and suprising to her. Both of the quotes show how these characters were living there lives
looking at the world through naive eyes. these quotes both expressed
and described the lives they are/were living. Next Topic- Though these characters deal with problems, they both grow up and become
stronger, as well as reflect on their lives. Scout and Lily develop from naive little girls to mature young ladies throughout this story.
They struggle through life but are guided by the people who care about them. "Atticus, he was real nice....
His hands were under my chin, pulling up the cover, tucking it around me.
'Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.' He turned out the light and went into Jem's room. He would be there all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning. (Lee 281) Scout, after growing out of being an innocent tomboy, has instead become more of a young lady. She
looks back at the people who guided her, like Atticus, and is thankfull for them. After having to live through many hardships, Lily became realistic and grew more
internally and externally. she learned to see the world how it is, and looked back and
remembered the people who guided her. After facing many difficulties in an imperfect life, Scout and Lily have become young women
who understand how the world is and how it's people are. They also look back at the people
who guided them. Next Topic- Both of these characters had troubled lives. By overcoming challenges,
Lily and Scout have become stronger and have grown up. They were
guided by those who loved them and overcame any obstacle. Scout Finch and Lily Owens are two characters
born into an imperfect world of suffering. Only
by seeing the truth could they survive. How Might have Lily and Scout turned out if they weren't being properly
guided by the people they held dear? Though our lives may be polluted with hardships and sadness, with
the right courage, we can persevere and become stronger. V IV III II I Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird. HarperCollins: 1960 Kidd, Sue Monk. The Secret Life of Bees. Penguin Books, Bibliographic Source Information- "This is the autumn of wonders,
yet every day, every single day, I go back to that burned afternoon in August when T.Ray left, i go back to that one moment when i stood in the driveway with small rocks and clumps of dirt in my feet and looked
back at the porch. And there they were. All these mothers. I have more mothers then any eight girls off the street.They are the moons shining over me.
