To Kill A Mockingbird
In the classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are two
families that are textbook examples of complete opposites on the moral ladder,
and in the community. The Cunninghams and the Ewells have two distinctly
different reputations. The Cunninghams, although extremely poor, are highly
respected throughout Maycomb County. The Ewells, being just as poor as the
Cunninghams, are deeply despised.

Bob accused Tom of raping and beating his daughter,
though he had done it himself. After being found guilty, Tom Robinson was shot
while supposedly trying to escape. All Bob Ewell could think about however

black man. He tried to kill Scout and Jem for retribution against Atticus, but
eventually was killed himself by Aurthur "Boo" Radley.
