Hi, my names is Samantha McAllister I am the main character in the book Every Last Word. in this book I am not only a main character I'm a poet , a swimmer, a patient and a popular girl.
I have many conflicts in this book. Some with my friends the crazy eights, some with my fellow poets at Poets Corner, and some even with myself about wether to tell my deep dark secret.
When I'm at my therapist I usually talk about the girls at school. How they criticize my lunches, my choices, my outfits, and my attendance to their hangouts. When I was struggling with them I was looking for something to occupy my time that is when I found Poets' Corner. A place where there is no judgement and all positivity and thats where I met Caroline.
One of my conflicts is one of my biggest secrets. I have OCD none of my friends know or my teachers. I don't intend for them to know either they would look at me different or cut me out. So every couple weeks I go to a therapist which I'm not proud of but I talk to my therapist about all conflicts.
One of my biggest conflicts was at Poets' Corner when my friend Caroline introduced me to a guy at the Poets' Corner who later became one of my best friends named AJ.
When I first met AJ he was reading a poem in Poets' Corner. Afterward I was talking to him about how great his poem was. He thanked me the next day in the the hallway I just finished hating with him about Poets' Corner and I walked over the 8's, and they said that AJ was a boy we had bullied in grade school. At that point I didn't know whether to apologize or not I decided to and that made our relationship stronger.
One our first day of school I had a Technology to self conflict. Since I'm 15 I can't dive with anyone else in the car so one day my friend texted me begging me to pick here up for school. This was a rule that my mother told me absolutely not do it so I had to decide. I need up doing it and serving the consequences of my actions without my car for a week.
