Exposition: I chose this because this is where Ian faced his first problem. He was late for the interview and go in trouble with some men.
Inciting Incident: This is the first time I mentioned Sarge and I think the minute we meet Sarge gets the story in motion.
Rising Action: I chose this because it builds tension, Sarge is mad at Ian and it tells us he holds Rwanda close to him and is trying to do something with it.
Climax: This was one of the most emotional parts of the book to me, it was the one in which I remember the most. It expresses sadness, anxiousness, and happiness
Falling Action: Well I ran out of choices and this is after the Climax.
Resolution: I think this part best shows what Ian has learned from working at the Club and helping Sarge out with his drinking problem.
It was a cold, breezy, spring evening at Shelby park. Ian was walking through the park on his way to a Interview at The Club. On his way though he encountered three thugs. Making him late. This was his first problem he encountered.
After being saved from those three thugs the man who saved him escorted him out of the park. After being escorted Ian he ran down the dangerous streets of the city. He made his way down and was accepted to his job.
Ian is assigned to interview a veteran so he interviews the man that saved him. While he was interview in the Club Sarge mentioned Rwanda. Bringing a cold memory into a warm loving place. Ian didn't know about Rwanda and Sarge walked out on him.
Ian decides to go to Sarge's tent circle and comfort him. He is drinking and Ian had a story for him about a boy and Starfishes on the beach. He is saying that it is OK to have those memories, but he needs to feel good about what he did.
Ian convinced Sarge to go get help for his drinking Problem. Summer has descended on the city. Though he has much time to hang with friends he goes to the Club to continue to help. After he tells the story to Sarge.
After all his time at the Club Ian has learned that the world doesn't revolve around him. he continues to help many people and has helped Sarge in the biggest way possible. Maybe even getting him off the street.
