The beginning

Your name is Charles Baker Harris, but people call you Dill.  You have come to the small town of Macomb for the summer, from Mississippi.  You are staying with your Aunt Rachel.  The only kids in the neighborhood other than you, are a boy named Jeremy and a girl named Jean.    From what you can tell, they are siblings.  They live next door to you.  Your aunt told you about them, and everyone else on the street, accept for the people living in the house at the end of the street.

You are outside your aunt's house, and looking for something to do.
