    If I were to become a character in the story, I would become Scout. She seems to see everything and know a lot more than any other character. She has a pretty unique outlook on what she sees, and that's what makes her a good main character. I like her character's personality. She's interesting and funny, and since she acts/seems so young and naive, she's never afraid to say what everyone else might consider silly.
