In the beginning of the story, Boy 21, we are introduced to many characters including Finn, Pops, Finns dad, and coach. This section begins with Finn being the only white person on the basketball team practicing on his jump shot nonstop. He has a passion for this sport, is really good at it. His dad is in a wheelchair. Both his dad and his Pops support him through everything no matter what.
Good shot kid! You are amazing at Basketball
A very important new character is introduced. When Finn was practicing basketball, a girl came up to him and asked if she can play. At first, he ignored her, then after he missed a shot. The girl, Erin, grabbed the ball, shot and made it. After that, they are boyfriend and girlfriend now.
Hi! Can I play!
Coach is a very good influence on Finn. Finn does whatever he wants him to do. Coach is a very trustworthy person. This is why Finn loves coach. He treats him like his dad.He is the coach of the basketball team in high school.
THANK YOU SO MUCH COACH!!!
You are going to be starting Point guard on the team!
You should come sit with me at lunch!
Finn finally meets boy 21. He is an abnormal kid that believes he is from outer space. That is this kids biggest secret. Coach tells Finn to meet him so they go to his house and talk for about 10 minutes. They get to know each other a bit. Boy 21 says something to Finn like he is an alien. Boy 21 also loves to play basketball and is going to be starting.
Finn is struggling really hard to keep boy 21's secret. When Erin asks him about boy 21 he feels so bad because he cants tell her nothing. So, he just says that he is going to our school.
SO! What is up with that Boy 21 kid?
Nothing really, but he is going to our school in a couple of days!
Finally, it is boy 21's first day of school. Many people don't recognize Boy 21 so some people ask him to sit by them at lunch. During school, Finn is always by Boy 21 just like Coach said. Coach asked Finn if he could just stay with Boy 21 during school, so he doesn't blurt out his secret.
