  • Jamie
  • Junior  Dance 
  • Jamie
  • Rising Action: In this scene the streak just keeps getting worse, Jamie and Froggy are looking at the poster while a girl hits him on the back and blames him for missing the lay up. They move on from her and continue to talk about Celia.  "We stopped to look at the poster for the junior dance and a girl gave me a bump on the back." ------------------------------------------------------------ Literary Elements: Hyperbole and Imagery Explanation: Imagery is very critical because this is what gives us insight and foreshadows what comes next in the story
  • Jamie
  • Girl who shoved Jamie
  • Exposition: This is the scene where Jamie blows the game winning shot and the streak begins. He mentions how the WHOLE school hates him for it and when Froggy (His Best Friend) tries to cheer him up by asking him to come and listen to music, he gets mad because Froggy doesn't understand. Literary Elements: Metaphor and Hyperbole 
  • Jamie
  • Inciting Incident: In this scene they recall and remember what happened in the game. They pass by the junior dance poster and Jamie mentions how he wants to take Celia (the finest girl in the school) to the dance, Froggy makes fun of him because no matter what he does Jamie can never get her. Literary Elements:  Flashback and Characterization 
  • Jamie
  • Jamie
  • Climax: In this scene all the bad streaks happen to Jamie and he can't handle it anymore and things can't get worse from this point. He is fully crying and sobbing and at this point pretty much believes Froggy's idea about the streak and just wants the good things to start. "No man your streak is going to end' Froggy said. 'Yeah, when I'm dead." --------------------------------------------------------- Literary Elements: Personification and Hyperbole Explanation: Personification and Hyperbole are very crucial to this scene because Jamie only thinks of the extremes and want to either have good things immediately or just end it all. Also it mentions how tears are running down his face and he is really crying.
  • Falling Action: In this scene he just aced a math pop quiz, and all the streaks are starting to reverse for him giving him good things for each bad thing he received. He had 7 bad things which means 7 good things in return, he wants to ask Celia to the dance while his luck is still high so they can go together. Literary Elements: Imagery and Foreshadowing
  • Resolution: Jamie got all of his good luck things, the last one being a buzzer beater to win a basketball game. Therefore Jamie doesn't think he has a chance to go to the dance with Celia, but she actually makes the first move and confronts him to ask him to the dance. Jaime is crazy excited on the inside but acts cool and actually realizes everybody has lucky days, weeks, or streaks.  ----------------------------------------------------------- Literary Elements: Metaphor and Personification
