11:59 John Gordon 11:59 By Patricia C. McKissack Setting • So one place is at the train station and there are trains and train tracks. • The other is at Lester’s house. Point Of View • The point of view is the narrators point of view. • Because the narrator is telling the story from the their own perspective. Not the characters perspective. Characters • Lester is my favorite character. • The reason I chose Lester as my favorite character for a couple reasons. • One reason I chose Lester as my favorite character is because he knows that if you here the 11:59 you will die in 24 hours and not one person has escaped it but like he said I got to try. Theme • I think the theme for the 11:59 is that death is unavoidable and life is just a ticking watch with one battery • “unus annus” Plot • Exposition-introduces Lester and who he is. • (I don’t know if I am allowed to add a inciting incident but im going to because it helps me) Inciting Incident”Aint no way to escape the final ride on the 11:59” • Rising Action-everybody is talking about the 11:59 and is wondering were some old friends are and they boarded the 11:59. Plot • Conflict-Lester hears the whistle of the 11:59 • Climax- Lester knows that not a single person has escaped the 11:59 but he wants to try. • Falling Action-After all the precautions that Lester had taken he doesn’t escape the 11:59 • Resolution- Lester boards the 11:59 Recommendation • I would recommend this story for many reasons • But to save some time the main reason is that it teaches a great lesson and is very entertaining.
