Exposition in Story : The expositon of the story is when Moon's pap died. This is the expostion part of the story because if moons pap didnt die none of this would be happening. Moon wouldn't have had Kit with him in a different forest. Moon would still be in the forest and shelter by his self with his pap.
Moons pap died. Pap told moon that he needed to go to Alaska , because there were more people like him up there. On Moons way up to Alaska moon gets caught by Sanders and gets sent to Pinson.
I think the theme of the story is to not be so independent and let other people help you. Don't be rude when people try to help you.


- Conflict is the main problem in the story

- Moons pap died and he is trying to get to Alaska but gets caught.
Rising Action
- The rising action is before the climax or is getting to the climax.
- The rising action is when Moons pap dies and he is about to leave for Alaska people find out that he buried his own pap.
The climax is the exciting part of the story .

- The climax is when Moon gets caught.
Falling Action
The Falling Action brings the story to a satisfying end

- Moon never gets caught and stays in the forest.
Solved the problem
- The resolution is Hal and his dad pick moon up so he doesnt get caught.
Literary Conflicts
Man vs. nature - opposed to natures forces
Man vs. himself - main character struggles with things against his self.
Man vs. Man - between main character and another person.

- This book is Man vs. Man. I think this becasue Moon has problems with alot of people. And is trying to not get caught.
