This hero is the main one in the book. He is a kind boy with tricky character. Also, he has a kind of misunderstanding in his inner world. The thing he needed to understand was to whom he felt loyal: to follow a religion, or follow his gut instincts? To obey his father or the Widow? To listen to Tom or the Phelpses? Also, he was self-confident, when he decided what the right thing to do; he did it even if it’s unacceptable for the society. Nevertheless, from time to time he did questionable things (like a lie, cheat, and prank his friends).
