The Falling Action of the story is when coach caught Castle stealing the shoes. Coach was very mad and confused but luckily coach did not kick him off the team. Coach then went back to the store to pay for the shoes.
These are symbols that were all around the book. The gun represents when father tried to kill Castle and his mother because he got drunk. The shoes represent when he stole the shoes from the store. The bleachers represent Castle and him doing track. The sunflower seed represent his memories with his dad.
The resolution is when he had his first race. He was very excited that he ended up walking there. He almost missed the race because he walked to the race. But in the end he figured it out and hopefully won his race.
