                  Summary- Tom Sawyer is a very mischievous and courageous character. He sets of to do the wildest thing. His characters humor is amazing. He shows how to have fun and just being a kid. He using his scene of humor to annoy people and get there attention. I love his character because it shows his boldness and his creative imagination. In the story Tom lives with his Aunt Polly and she knew Tom was very sneaky, conniving, and up to no good. For that, Tom found himself doing many chores for his bad behavior. Tom tries to trick Aunt Polly to letting him not go to school by whining about a lose tooth but she uses a sing and pulls it out.

       On his way to school Tom meets Huckleberry Finn the son of the towns drunkard and shows Tom one of his tricks. When Tom finally arrived for school he being flirting with one of his crushes Becky and tries to get her attention.

Tom runs as fast as he could and hears towards a graveyard and sees Huck himself and agree to meet each other again, so Tom sneaks out by hearing Huck's signal (a meow). Later on in the night both boys see shadowy figures in the graveyard where they were before. Both clueless and puzzled about what is happening. They then they begin to see the two men fighting and Injun Joe frames Potter. Tom and Huck try to leave quickly and flee from the scene, and then the two write a oath sworn with there blood to try and figure out what the whole commotion was about that night. Huck climbs into Tom's room window and sees the gift that he gave Becky (the door knob).

             Within minutes Injun Joe tells the sheriff that Muff Potter stabbed a doctor in a drunken rage last night when Tom snuck out to see Huck. This begin to Make Aunt Polly think that Tom had nightmares about the murder and what took place there.
