Why am I even here? I don't even have that much money with me, so I'll need to make it last.
Melinda's thoughts: NO! What is happening?!
Your so pretty... Get on the ground.
The exposition would have to start with how Melinda's parents don't get along real well and it's the first day of school. Melinda meets a new girl named Heather that is very driven and happy. They become "best friends".
I can't believe that you are so jealous of me and Andy that you would make up something like this!
Soon, after her one and only friendship started, she started ditching school and had no passing grades. She constantly hung out at the mall because, she hated her home and school was found dreadful to her. Then, Hether ditched her for a different group of girls called the Martha's.
Heard you were spreading lies!
The main conflict in this novel is how Melinda is just starting freshman year. Everyone hates her because she called the cops at the party during the summer. Nobody knows why she did this besides her and Andy Evans. Also, ever since Andy Evans raped her she has been cut off from evveryone and rarely ever speaks.
Good job Melinda. I can see your pain, would you like to talk about it?
The climax would have to be when Melinda finally warns Rachel and tells someone about the party. Melinda tells Rachel about how Andy raped her but, Rachel doesn't believe her. Also, Heather ditches Melinda because she's embarrassed by her, and tries to come back. Melinda tells her no and feels better about it.
I'm not making this up. It's true.
The falling action would have to be Andy trying to rape Melinda in her closet again, because Rachel exposed him at prom about the party. But, this time Melinda finally speaks up and fights back. The lacrosse team hears her screaming and gets help.
For the resolution Melinda finally finishes her tree art on the last day of school and gets an A+ from Mr.Freeman.Also, she opens up to him and begins to tell him about her pain.
Tears of joy becuase she finally passed and has someone to talk too.
