Scout has an email account, and she corresponds with her teachers, and fellow fourth-graders. Sometimes she's asking for help on homework.
Mostly, she's starting trouble.
She emails all her friends and asks them to weigh in: "What do you like better: olives or pickles?"
Once that's resolved—or cut short by a friend getting the last word—("I rock, in my opinion")—Scout moves the debate to pie vs. cake.
She's into pasting Internet clip-art into emails—"emails just look better with pictures," she says—and her latest manufactured donnybrook is, "What do you like better: hearts or peace signs?"
I think she's preparing herself to take over the family blog.
