The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Consider Tom’s ticket scam to get the Bible and the way in which his deception was exposed. Why did Tom go through with such a plan (at church of all places!) and what was he trying to accomplish . . . besides getting a new copy of the Bible? Explain.

Please answer in 4 or more sentences. Thank you!

I think Tom is mischevious at heart. He liked the attention and to be the centre of theatrics. He also wanted to get the attention of Becky Thatcher.
