Jem's anger at Mrs.Dubose's calling Atticus 'a nigger lover' leads him to destroy her prized camellias in a fit of anger. Sentenced to read to her, her discovers that she is a tough fighter who needs his services to distract her as she fights a morphine addiction. Atticus uses her as an example for the children as he acknowleges her courage in quitting the painkiller independently.
