Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird Quiz

“So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them," Sylvia Plath observed. For many years, Boo has been locked up in his home for a mistake he made in his youth. Unable to communicate like other people, Boo instead tries to make friends with Scout, Jem, and Dill by leaving little gifts for them.
