Chapter 13

Aunt Alexandra got settled into the house where Atticus, Scout and Jem lived. Scout and Jem were surprised to see her. Aunt Alexandra explained that she and Atticus thought it would be good for Scout and Jem if she stayed with them during the summer. She could watch over them while they were out of school and while Atticus was at work.

Aunt Alexandra met the people of Maycomb and became involved in different groups. She had parties at the house where the women got together to talk or gossip. Aunt Alexandra didn’t like Scout running around in overalls and getting dirty. She thought Scout should start acting like a lady.
