The story is told in first person. It is easy to forget that Scout tells the story from both the youthful child's point-of-view as well as from her mature, adult perspective. This style of writing was unusual, especially for the time. Because of this there is a decided shift in voice yet Scout always maintains the essence of what makes her "Scout" whether child or adult.
