Activity Overview


In this activity, students will choose an event, or a series of connected events, that play a key role in the plot.


This example, from Chapter 13, reveals Byron’s feelings for Kenny and how their relationship strengthens. First, Kenny ignores all of the warnings to stay away from Collier’s Landing. Kenny gets caught in a whirlpool and is unable to swim back to shore. Byron rescues Kenny from drowning and pulls him to shore. Once Kenny is safely out of the water, Byron holds him tight and kisses him over and over again; this is the first instance where Byron shows positive affection towards Kenny. This scene further shows their growing relationship when Byron instructs Kenny not to tell anybody about what happened.
