The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The irony is a term used to describe a situation that is deliberately contrary to what one was expecting. Why do you think it is ironic that Huckleberry Finn is the envy of all of the “respectable boys” in town?

In what ways in Huck different from the other boys? Why might these differences be desirable to the boys of St. Petersburg? Why is that ironic? Explain.

^ this question is kind of long so I put the rest in the details.

Help please (4 sentences at least)

Huck is rather a wild child who does not attend school or church. This is ironic because Huck has no stability in life and remains outside the mainstream yet boys wish they had his life.
