In the novel: To Kill a Mocking Bird by Nelly Harper Lee, Jeremy Finch or Jem is the Main Character’s Jean “Scout” Finch’s brother. Because Jem is an older brother, he wants to sound very professional and not childish. You see this in chapter 1 when Jem says: “Ain’t scared, just respectful” because he doesn’t want to make himself look bad! You also see Jem sounding older than he is by telling Scout: “I declare to the lord you are getting more like a girl everyday” when she is nervous. Because of these quotes, Jem wants to act more mature and professional! Jem has however been prejudice towards scout throughout the first 8 chapters so I believe he will show more of that throughout the story!
