school is used as a tool to drive ideas that support slavery. The author used religion perfectly to inform audiences that even that aspect, cannot be fully trusted in acquiring life principles. Quote 3 "It's YOU, at last!—AIN'T it?" I out with a "Yes'm" before I thought.” (Twain 222) In the initial states of the story, there is respect among friends and relatives, as people treat each other with honesty. As the story progress, however, it is evident that the characters blatantly lie to serve their interests. The quote is between Tom Sawyer's Aunt Sally, where she is asking to confirm if it is Huck, Huck, with the tendency of lying, responds positively, even without caring to know who “you” in Sally’s context denotes. Huck will adopt the identity of anyone, to serve his interest. The narrator at this point reveals that it may be necessary to lie even to your close friends and relatives, just to get things done. Lies and deceit dominate the latter parts of the book, with friends and relatives turning against each other, all with their interest at hand.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
