Transcript of Illustrated Plot-Line

Crackback by John Coy The protagonist in Crackback is Miles Manning. He is a sophomore student, who does everything to be the best in his American Football Team. The story is set in present day U.S.A., in the High School of a small town. In the beginning of the book, Miles is trying really hard to do his best, and is put under a lot of pressure by his father, who is always chiding him. Introduction: Rise in Action 1: A critical event in the book is when Miles' team loses the game, because of him. This is because he was under a lot of pressure and did not pay attention. After this, Coach Stahl takes his starting position away and Miles has to sit on the bench during the games. Because of this his dad gets very angry as well, and things get worse. Rise in Action 2: A second critical event in the book is when Miles decides about the drugs that Zach gave him. He decides to go by what he thinks is right. He does not let Zach influence him, and make him do the wrong things. Finally, he flushes the steroids down the toilet. Conflict: The major conflict in Crackback is the pressure Miles is under, because of several different people. Coach Stahl is pushing him to work extremely hard. His father is always chiding him when he fools around a little. His friend is trying to make him take drugs, and he is not making a progress with girls either. Climax: I think that the climax of the book is when Miles's mom tells him about Luke, how he died, and he also goes on a date with Lucia. This is the point when Miles understands why his father acts the way he does. After this he doesn't chide him anymore. Also, he finally makes progress with Lucia, which he wanted to do for a long time. Resolution: After the climax, things start to work out for Miles. He calms down, and does not take football seriously anymore. Because he is calm, he even succeeds to win a match for his Team. His father compliments him after his game, and they discuss Luke, and their relationship improves drastically. And also, he develops a good relationship with Drew, and his father isn't against it. Conclusion: Miles's conflict does not end completely. Coach Stahl does not allow him to play any more games. But the pressure he was under was resolved. He finally finds out the reason, and understands why his father is behaving the way he does, and develops a better relationship with him. Also, the most important thing at the end of the book, is that Miles finally gets a girlfriend, Lucia, which was his primary ambition. So basically the things Miles really cares about by the end of the book, work out for him. Bibliography: Coy, John. Crackback. New York: Scholastic, 2005. Print.
