Storyboard Text

  • The Shadow Club By Neal Shusterman
  • This is Jarred, the second best runner in the school, second best to Austin Pace, a boy who teased and taunted him for being second best. Jarred is best friends with a girl named Cherryl. He is also friends with her brother, Randy.
  • "I wasn't outstanding in any of my classes, and I wasn't the most popular guy in school. Whatever it was, I was always somewhere in the middle...But I could run, and when you're a fast runner, there's nothing like that feeling as you pick up speed," (17)
  • Cherryl
  • The big conflict is between Jarred, Cherryl, Randy and the other second bests at their school, and the "unbeatables", the kids who were the "best". The second bests form a club to pull small, harmless pranks on the unbeatables. Cherryl vs Rebecca is just one example of this.

  • Rebecca
  • The climax occurs when Jarred saves Tyson McGraw from the fire in his home. This is when Jarred realizes the pain and misery he has created by making the shadowclub.
  • Jarred saves Tyson
  • The conflict is resolved when the members of the shadowclub apologize for all of the horrible things they had done. They decide to destroy the shadow club, never to meet again.
  • The theme of the book is that no one is truly a bad person. Sometimes people just don't do the right thing, but of course that still doesn't make it ok.
  • "We [the shadowclub] were all good kids. Not a single kid in the Shadow Club had done anything bad and there wasn't a single delinquent in the bunch. Not at first. (1)
