Aha! I found it! Lol, it's on page 216 of my book. Right before Chapter 23. Hmm, good quote, you're right. Thanks for the help! I think I finally got this thing started, though! Yay.

Well, I handed in my paper last Friday! It came out okay, I thought, but I wasn't expecting the best grade. But I got it back today, and somehow miraculously managed a B+! I was very excited to say the least! I'm glad I wrote it though.. it helped me understand a lot of the book a bit more.

No, not the baby steps quote.. I used the whole to kill a mockingbird theme, with how certain characters could be compared to mockingbirds (you know, not hurting anyone, but being singled out all the same). It came out fairly well, at least!

Such a Great work of Literature.  The movie is just wonderful, too.  Gregory Peck did such a fantastic job.  I need to get the book and add it to my collection.

I couldn't help but wonder as he walked away; does he ever think of me THAT way?  I didn't ask and he didn't say.

I tried reading this book when I was thirteen, but found it too boring...I picked up a copy of it two years later, and I began reading it recently. There are some bits I'm confused about, and the end left me wanting more. 

Is Ms. Lee still alive?

The end, for one - I read it too fast and have now passed the book onto my dad so I'm still a little perplexed about what happened. It said Jem was sleeping, didn't it? So was that some metaphor? Or was he just...sleeping.

Also, there was a bit mid-way through the book, I believe, at the end of a chapter. It was right about when their aunt moved in, and Jem & Scout thought Atticus, who had come in to say good night, was changing on them. However, right before he left their room he made a comment that made them realize that their father was the same as always. What I didn't get was Scout's remark - she said something along the lines of, "I now realize what Atticus was trying to do... but he was a man, not a woman..." Was she referring to his joke about turning out like the cousin, or how he disciplined them? I didn't quite get it..

I love this book . If I ever have a son I think I may name him Atticus. Or  Telemachus....

I think Jem was just sleeping:).

I don't have the book with me, but I think what Scout is referring to is how he didn't always know how to handle Scout, as she was a girl. that's why he gave into his sister's suggestion that one time. In reality, he knew more about raising Scout than a million of her aunts could.
