Transcript of The Unwanteds

By: Lisa McMann The The setting is mostly in Quill and Artimé. It starts off in the dreary island of Quill but then it goes into the colorful and magical land of Artimé. The setting helps in the story because the book is pretty mysterious. Setting Main The main conflict or problem in this story is that Artimé might be discovered. They don't want it to get discovered because High Priest Justine knows that the Unwanteds will just damper Quill's success in everything. She wants them terminated. Just like the small nation's motto, Quill Prevails When The Strong Survive, they want the ones who will benefit the island and the ones who won't... dead. Main Conflict • Samheed and another Unwanted Will Blair keep sneaking off to the library at the strangest times. Alex follows them once and finds out that they are planning to build a 3D door, that Will can open to get to Quillitary school. when he gets there he wants to kill Aaron and use magic to look just like him so no one will suspect anything. Alex hurriedly tries to finish his door before Will and Samheed. He does and tries to convince Aaron to come with him but Aaron denies trying to convince himself that this is all a dream. Aaron thinks that Alex is dead. Main Events Quill goes to war with Artimé, which is probably the dumbest thing they will ever do. Lani has the chance to face her father. But he explains to her that he was always on Mr. Today's side. He says that the second she could be out of Quill, he would send her to Artimé. She forgives him and they fight against Quill together. The Artimésians easily defeat Quill and their rusty old machinery. Justine dies when Lani throws scatterclips, a type of magical weaponry, in her back. They Quillans have a choice. Will they continue their annual Purge? Or will they finally become civil? They choose to continue the Purge but as Mr. Today admits. It may take long for people to change, and even longer for civilizations. Solution Vocabulary UNWANTEDS Jayna Green Alexander Stowe Traits: caring, kind, smart, witty Alex is Unwanted.
