    Scroll down this webpage and read about the motif of "Lies and Cons" -- then let us know if you find another idea in there.

    You pretty much have your thesis statement in the first sentence you wrote above -- when you are explaining your assignment. Try rephrasing it into a sentence starting with "Huck's heart ... " (And you don't have to have the three examples in that sentence unless your teacher insists. I think it'd be too long.)
