Protagonist = Tyler Tyler is the Protagonist in Twisted. He was once a nerdy kid but after working hard all summer he became muscly.
Bethany the girl of Tyler’s dreams is the antagonist in twisted. In the beginning Tyler only cares about getting her attention. Until later when things go wrong
My favorite character is yoda. He is obsessed with Starwars and has been Tylers best friend for years. Yoda is obsessed with Tylers little sister.
Least Favorite Character My least favorite character would be Bethany. She thinks she is all great because she is pretty and her parents have money. When really she is spoiled and immature
The main rising action is when everyone returns to school after summer break. Everyone meets the new Tyler and even Bethany falls for tyler
Exposition The exposition in the story is when your learning about Tyler and his past.
The climax in the story takes place during the big party where Bethany gets drunk and tries to hook up with Tyler but he turns her down trying to be a hero. Instead everything backfires.
The falling action takes place after Tyler is accused of taking the photos of Bethany. The cops are involved and he almost gets kicked out of school
Everything settles down towards the end of the book when the people who actually took the photos are found, Tyler throws out his dads gun, and the family becomes one again.
Setting The setting takes place in modern times. The main locations are: school, Tyler’s house, and Bethany’s house.
The themes in the story are Family Love Hate Desire
On a scale of one to ten I rate this book as a seven. Its not bad and it kept me somewhat hooked.
Emotional Child Abuse Teen Suicide Teen Drinking
Emotional Child Abuse There are many forms of emotional child abuse. Coldnessignoring harassmentIsolationRejectionterrorizing
Types of abuse Ignoring happens when the parents don’t pay attention to the child Harassment scares children and repeated exposure to fear can alter the child not only mentally but physically Coldness happens when the parents don’t show the love and warmness towards their children
Child Abuse Cont. When most people think of child abuse they think physical. However emotional child abuse is far more common.
Teen Suicide Suicide is a major issue that all countries deal with today Suicides among young people continue to be a serious problem. Each year in the U.S., thousands of teenagers commit suicide. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15-to-24-year-olds, and the sixth leading cause of death for 5-to-14-year- olds.
^Things to watch out for^ change in eating and sleeping habits withdrawal from friends, family, and regular activities violent actions, rebellious behavior, or running away drug and alcohol use unusual neglect of personal appearance marked personality change persistent boredom, difficulty concentrating, or a decline in the quality of schoolwork frequent complaints about physical symptoms, often related to emotions, such as stomachaches, headaches, fatigue, etc. loss of interest in pleasurable activities not tolerating praise or rewards
If a child or adolescent says, I want to kill myself, or I'm going to commit suicide, always take the statement seriously and immediately seek assistance from a qualified mental health professional.
Teen Drinking My final social issue from “Twisted” is teen drinking.
Teen Drinking Facts Every day an average of 11,318 teens try alcohol for the first time. Underage drinkers account for 11.4% of all alcohol consumed in the U.S. Americans drink the heaviest in their teens to mid-twenties Three out of four high school seniors have consumed alcohol by the time they graduate. More than half of high school seniors report being drunk at least once. Source:
