The Adventures of Tom Sawyer


by Mark Twain

Amy Lawrence

Character Analysis

Amy Lawrence is Tom's former love. She's unceremoniously wiped from his heart the moment he sees Becky Thatcher, but for some reason Tom is briefly interested in her toward the middle of the novel, after he comes back from Jackson's Island. This leads to some squabbling between Tom and Becky; but, eventually, Amy's left in the lurch.
