When the novel first begins, Jem is ten years old.
Jem is nine years old at the beginning of the novel. Within a few pages of the beginning of Chapter One, Scout begins to reveal details that occured when she was "almost six and Jem was nearly ten." Also, Jem is twelve years old at the beginning of Part Two.
Nine, almost ten at the start.
Twelve in Part Two.
