In the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Mark Twain shows how Huck evolves in every adventure and how he is growing in every aspect of his life It is easy to forget that Huck is only a twelve-year old boy when we see him out smart grown men The most significant part of the whole novel is the decision that Huck has to make about Jim Huck would never turn his back on Jim now because he is his only family Huck also grows up in the sense that he loses his innocence He begins to understand the hypocrisy of society He sees the Grangerfords killed by the Shephardsons and he sees the Duke and the King manipulate the townspeople out of their money He starts realizing he can converse with the opposite sex and that he can tell the truth Even though Huck is un-educated he learns and understands many things about people and himself Huck goes through many trails that initiate him into the adult world Huck takes on the role of a rebel and goes against Paps authorityHuck starts getting tired of Paps authority Pap has not been a father figure and Huck does not really know what it is like to feel loved Huck acts mature in the sense that he can take care of himself but deep-down inside he is scared and yearning to be loved and wanted We know this because when he runs away from his father he ends up going to the Widow Douglas She tries to turn Huck into a civilized boy but Huck is not about to change just to please the Widow Huck then decides to give his money to Judge Thatcher so that Pap cannot take his money In the novel it shows repeatedly how Pap tries to take his money and this proves that he is selfish and does not care about Huck because if he did he would not beat
