"Becky and The Wheels-And-Brake-Boys"
By: Luisa Subero
This story takes place in Jamaica, in a neighborhood full of boys with bikes. The time is present time. I think the author chose this setting because he is from Jamaica, so he wanted to make the story relate to him.

The main conflict in this story is MAN vs. SOCIETY

Continues throughout the story until, Becky finally gets her bike.

"That bike took me all over the place" (Page 373)
"My cousin Ben's eyes popped out with envy" (Page 377)
The bike is a symbol in this story.
It represents FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE
You have to be determined and persistent to reach your goals
It doesn't matter if you are a girl or a boy, if you want to do it, do it :)
My favorite part of this story was when the fire man gave Becky a bike, because it solved the main conflict of the story, and demonstrated that Becky's mom really helped Becky's dream come true.
My Favorite Part
