Book Report Project, McKenzie Craig
The falling action in Splintered was when Alyssa needed the Ivory Queen out of the jabberlock box but the only way she could get her out was if someone else whould take her place forever. As Alyssa was trying to find a different way to get the Ivory Queen out of the Jabberlock box, she found out that Morpheus, her guide, was evil. When she ran away from him, she found out that her friend, Jeb, took the Ivory Queen's place in the Jabberlock box and was locked in there.
The theme i learned from the story is that
imagination is a powerful thing and you should never give up on what you believe in
Strategies I used
#1. I used the cover
#2. I looked back on some pages
I WOULD RECO
I would recomend this book to my friends if they are interested in it. The reason why i say this book is because it has fantasy and adventure.
The resolution of Splintered is when remembered she still had a wish from a creature in wonderland and she wished for Jeb to come out of the box so they can both ride the portal back to their world. When she came back, Alyssa went to the psych facility and told the docters to not have the shock treatments on her mother and Alyssa told her mother that she broke the family's curse.
