The setting of my story is mostly at Right Way Basketball Camp. It is important because it’s a basketball book. It adds meaning because it shows how they want to improve at basketball even though they are great at playing basketball. Everything in the story wouldn’t make sense if the setting wasn't at Right Way Camp. Pretty much the whole story’s setting is at Right Way. So the story would change a lot if Right Way wasn't the primary setting of the book.
The conflict in the story is that, Danny is one of the shortest kids at the basketball camp. He is trying to find ways to use his shortness as an advantage, since all of the other boys at the camp are much taller than he is. The types of conflict are man vs. self and man vs. society. Its man vs. self because he’s dealing with his issue personally and thinking of ways he can fix his dilemma. Its also man vs. society because he’s finding ways to best his opponents because they are a lot taller than him.
Danny has always been the star of the basketball team. His dad was an NBA player for many years. Danny goes to a summer basketball camp called Right Way Basketball Camp, but realizes that’s he is physically the smallest one there. So he tries to find a solution to his problem. He’s out beat by the taller players on the court. To add more onto it, his coach at Right Way doesn’t like him. Later on, Danny fakes an injury to get out of camp. But his friends encourage him to stay and play basketball. So he practices to beat the taller boys. All his hard work pays off in the end, and Danny’s team ends up going to the championships. They win by one point against the other team.
The point of view is 3rd person omniscient. Third person omniscient helps the reader understand the emotions ofallcharacters. The author can describe the story from the vantage point of any character. The story would have been different if it were in another point of view because the author or writer wouldn’t be able to express his feeling like he does with the characters in the book.
In the book, Danny’s heart starts to pound heavily when he sees Tess ( the girl that he really likes) come walking towards his way. The symbolism is him (Danny) being nervous when he sees or is around Tess. His heart pounding heavily equals him being nervous when he sees or is around Tess.
If you are a fan, you’ll probably understand the book better than others. If you dint like basketball this is this a good book to read. If you want to read a book that will inspire you to try your hardest, then this is the book for you. This whole book is mainly about going through difficulties’ and hardships’. But I the end, you find your way out no matter what. This is definitely a good book to read.
