  • "Stanley Yelnats was given a choice. The Judge said 'You may go to jail or you may go to Camp Green Lake.' Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to a camp before" (5).
  • Rising Action
  • "It wasn't until the ship had cleared the harbor and was heading out across the Atlantic Ocean that he suddenly remembered his promise to carry Madame Zeroni up the mountain" (36-37).
  • Rising Action
  • "He took another deep breath. Think about this, he told himself, but there wasn't time to think. He flung open the door to the truck and climbed in quickly" (147).
  • Stanley was given the decision to go to jail of Camp Green Lake.  He chose Camp Green Lake instead of jail. His life would have been different if he went to jail. He wouldn't have broken the curse.  
  • Climax
  • Elya forgot to carry Madame Zeroni up the mountain and now his family has a curse on them.  His decision to leave Madame Zeroni gets Stanley into Camp Green Lake.
  • Falling Action
  • "They would dig for as long as it seemed safe, and not a second longer. And then, treasure or no treasure, they'd head up the dirt road" (190).
  • Stanley is stealing Mr. Sir's truck and going after Zero. He doesn't have to go after him but he is his friend. This decision helps him and his family in a big way.
  • Resolution
  • "After legal fees and taxes, Stanley and Zero each received less than a million dollars. But not a lot less" (230).
  • Stanley could have gone on without Zero but he didn't. He made the right decision to keep on going and because of that he broke the curse. He and his family are no longer cursed. 
  • "Stanley took hold of Zero's forearms and pulled him upright. Then he stooped down and let Zero fall over his right shoulder. He stood up lifting Zero's worn-out body off the ground" (170).
  • Stanley and Zero went back to a hole to dig for the treasure. They could have just stole food from the Camp and run away but they decided to look for the treasure.
  • Stanley and Zero get a lot of money from the treasure and Stanley gets his family a new house with a laboratory  for his father. The decision to get the treasure makes Stanley and Zero rich.
