Fact #3
By: Sedona Shipka & Bianca Lutteke

The conflict in this story is Penny's mom getting married to Mr. Miller [the milk man]. The theme of the book is: changes happen in life and even though it could be good change in the long run, it can be difficult to get through. Lastly the plot is when the mom is getting married and when she finds out the truth on what caused her father's death. This book also uses very good descriptors and a fun read. It is also a Newberry winner!
Uncle N, Uncle R, and Uncle P did not play any big roles in the story but when they were mentioned they were protagonists
Veronica Goodman does not play a big role in the story. You guys are probably thinking she is the good girl, but she's not. She is mean to Freddy and Penny at the meat shop they were working at because she was jealous of them. That's why she is an antagonist
Scarlett O'hara is the dog of the the family. She is an antagonist because she would always get in trouble. But sadly at the end of the story Scarlett dies.

Uncle Dominic lives in a car and wears slippers. He once had a chance to play for the Dodgers. No one knows why he quit?!?!
