Dill may be the brains behind the Finch kids' early attempts to draw out Boo Radley , but Jem is the one who takes action. He's the one who overcomes his fear to run up and touch the Radleys' front door, fiddles with the fishing pole to try to leave a note on Boo's windowsill, and spearheads the midnight raid on the Radley Place. Why does Jem want to see Boo so badly? Because he's a mystery right before their eyes, like the ones in the books he read? Or maybe it's all a game?

Jem respects and admires his father, Atticus Finch, cherishes his opinion and tries hard not to disappoint him. He also plans to subsequently become a lawyer like his father. Jem is quite an idealistic boy and feels shock and guilt when the jury finally convicts the innocent Tom Robinson. He finds it really difficult to understand and cope with this tragedy and injustice of the court.
