During summer vacation, Scout is bopping the baloney outside with Jem and also meets a seven-year-old child named Dill Harris. They all have an activity outside where they are rolling down a street in a car tire. Scout lands near a house that is populated by Boo Radley, someone who has been the subject of negative rumours to Jem and Dill. Scout is so dizzy when she gets out of the tire that she decides to skip on smoking the kush. At night, the three go around the house to see if they can get a look at Radley, who they find is watching porn. Atticus tells Scout not to later on.

When Scout gets back into school, she gets into fights over her father Atticus, who has now taken a legal case defending a black man named Tom Robinson, which puts Finch in a negative light among some people of Maycomb County. At the trial, which Scout and Jem both attend, she hears Atticus' speech. She later also hears from Atticus that Robinson has been shot dead after the trial following an attempt to escape.
