Storyboard Text

  • Protagonist: Shy
  • Antagonist: Mr. Miller
  • Theme
  • Shy is a well-hearted person who is also very courageous. He is a very dynamic and round character because he develops throughout the story immensely.
  • Symbol: "Shy understood how important it was that the duffel get to Arizona—hundreds of thousands of lives were on the line..." (24)
  • Mr. Miller is a greedy, fake, and ignorant person. He is static and flat because he isn't used very often in the story but we do find out a little bit about him from Shy.
  • Imagery: "He studied the battered fish restaurant they passed on a street named Windward Avenue. The roof was caved in, and all that was left of the windows were long, blackened shards. The place next to it was burned beyond recognition." (24)
  • The theme represented in this story is to never let anything or anybody in between you and your goals. Shy and his crew push through countless obstacles in this story but never stop fighting to get to Arizona. Everyone will encounter obstacles in their lives; it's just a matter of if they're willing to push through them or not.
  • Suspense: "...Shy spotted the kids on bicycles riding back into view. Only this time they were followed by a handful of adults. Some on bikes. Others on foot. Shy stopped in his tracks when he noticed something else. Two of the men were carrying rifles." (25)
  • The vaccine of the Romero Disease is inside this duffel bag, and this vaccine and duffel bag represents hope throughout the story. It is constantly referenced as their only motivation of getting to Arizona, and it is their last hope of ending this crisis.
  • This example of imagery is able to put the reader in Shy's shoes and see what he's seeing. The author gives a great description that creates an image in the reader's head, and better understands the setting and plot of the story.
  • The author creates suspense here by using fragmented sentences. He also isolates the final two sentences which gives it a suspenseful effect. This also happens to be the end of a chapter, so the author also uses this suspense as a cliffhanger.
