  1. It is a little awkward: "...Harper Lee, a major character, Jem's..." You might write "...Jem, drastically changes his view..." And I would say Jem's experiences were IN his hometown, not with.

  3. you need a comma after "Jem," Jem is a noun, but it tells who the major character is. The subject of your sentence is "a major character," a noun phrase.
