Storyboard Text

  • Struggles Alexie illustrates the struggles and the obstacles one encounters are necessary because it drives ones will for success in the fear of failure. -Joshua Lim
  • "'All the kids have given up,' he said, 'All your friends, All the bullies. And their mothers and fathers have given up, too.'...'You fought off that brain surgery. You fought off those seizures. You fought all the drunk and drug addicts. You kept your hope." -pg 43
  • Junior ever since he was young, he faced challenges that tried to demoralize him, but he stood strong and kept his hope because he didn't want to turn out like his friends where they lost their hopes. The challenges shown him what failure looked like (his friends, his rez) and that kept Junior from giving up. He had fear of failing and ending up like his rez fellows.
  • Junior was facing someone who was much bigger, better and stronger than he was. He didn't give up because he knew that would lead him to failure. Instead this drove him to try his best against him so that he could make the basketball the team and not be cut.
  • "'Roger is a big kid,' he said. 'He's huge,' I said. 'You want to take him on again? Or do you need a break?' Ninety percent of me wanted to take a break. But I knew if I took that break I would never make the team." -pg 140
  • Junior knew from the past that Rowdy jumps higher than him. He thought Rowdy was going to jump higher but Junior didn't give up and instead gave him adrenaline to jump higher than him. He knew his physical capabilities were his obstacles. He had fear of letting Rowdy score on him. This instead made Junior try his best in the fear of failure to jump higher than Rowdy and he did.
  • "I knew he'd jump about two feet higher than I could. So I needed to jump quicker. And Rowdy rose into the air. And I rose with him. AND THEN I ROSE ABOVE HIM!" -pg 191-192
