Chapter 31: Boo pats Jem on the head before Scout walks him home. The two say goodnight to each other and Scout never sees Boo again. After she returns home, Atticus reads to Scout from The Gray Ghost. Atticus tucks his daughter into bed and returns to sit at Jem's bedside. The book ends, "He turned out the light and went to Jem's room. He would be there all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning" (296).
