Autumn again, and Boo’s children needed him.
The end of the coming of age novel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, reads the warming quote “ Autumn again, and Boo’s children needed him” that describes everything the two children Jem and Scout have been through since the beginning of the novel. Through the intense prejudice against them to their growing up realizing their town beliefs are harsher than they realize. They stood up to mobs, watched their father shoot for the first time and witnessed an unfair ruling go to a innocent man. Through all this they were watched over by their mysterious friend Boo who saved their lives, kept them warm and gave them treasures and lessons that they will never lose. This quote describes how Boo Radley although never truly there watched out for his two kids through their rough time. Although there real father was with them the whole time of this unfairness the were really Boo’s children in the end.
