  • The story mainly took place in David's house, but also a little bit at school. At his house is where he was abused and yelled at by his mom.His dad was the only one that understands him. His mother also taught his brothers to be like her so they also scream at him. David is also the narrator of the story.
  • Climax
  • David's mom kept abusing him. For example the put him on the stove to burn  him and she also stabbed him with a knife.  Even though his mom stabbed him he still had to finish his chores. Lucky for him his dad came over and told him," I'll put the dishes away so it will go faster and your mother won't yell at you."(pg. 49)
  • Falling Action
  • I can't take this anymore your mother has gone insane. She treats you like crap and that's not fare. She doesn't treat the rest of her kids like you.
  • In the rising action it introduces us to ways the mother tortured the boy. It also gives us example of how she mentally and physically abused him. For example his mom always says," Hey you boy over there go clean the dishes from dinner after we are finish."( pg.5) She also called him some inappropriate names. Finally she also made him go into the bathtub and breathe in a substance that she made and it makes his lungs tighten. While that is happening she makes him keep his head half way under water.  
  • Resolution
  • One day the boy's mom started to be nice to him. He thought that that was really strange. His mom let him go out side and play with is brothers, sleep in a bed, and eat with the whole family. he thought that his life was finally going to be normal. When the next day came he realized it was just because a lady was coming in to visit them. She gave them all kinds of different questions. On some of the questions David lied.
  • The falling action is when the boy's dad is thinking about leaving. He is thinking about leaving because the boy's mom kept screaming at him. Also he doesn't think that it is fare that the boy has to do all of the chores while his brothers don't have to do anything, and they also don't get treated like him. One day he told David this."(pg. 127) I can't take this anymore your mother has gone insane. She treats you like crap and that's not fare. She does't treat the rest of her kids like you get treated."
  • Outside of the car he could hear his mother and brothers coming back to the car from McDonald's. As he could see his mom she sneered at him and when they got in the car she said this." Your all mine now. Too bad your father's not here to protect you now."(pg.152) He knew all of his defenses were useless. He was going to die he knew that his mother would kill him.
  • Your all mine now. Too bad your father's not here to protect you now.
