With Sam the conflict for him is that he needs to find his real family and get is adoptive father’s movie script made into an acutely movie. I would label this conflict as a man vs. self Trevor’s conflict is that he wants to play baseball but as a celebrity and movie star he isn't able to do some of the normal things kids do today. I would label this conflict as a man vs. society
The story of this book goes something like this Exposition: The book introduces Sam and Trevor to the story and shows how drastically different their lives are. Conflict: Trevor wants to play baseball and Sam is his ticket and Sam wants to help his dad get his script made into a movie and Trevor is his ticket. Rising action: Sam meets Trevor at the movie studio set and they trade numbers Trevor and his friend, Mekina, talk after Sam gets removed and realize Sam is Trevor’s twin. Trevor and Mekina invite Sam to a party and they tell Sam about their plan to trade places. Climax: Sam and Trevor trade places Falling action: They live each others lives for a while. Trevor learns that the baseball scouts are coming for Sam a game early and they have to rush to trade places Resolution: Sam and Trevor trade back in time and Sam gets accepted into the USC training center and Trevor makes it back to his studio and Sam’s dad gets his movie script made into a movie
Theme Follow your dreams. Text Evidence 1: Trevor Goldman risked his career to follow his dream of being able to play baseball with a team. Text Evidence 2: Sam risked getting punished and arrested by trading places with Trevor and to be able to follow his dream of being able to help his adoptive father. Text Evidence 3: Sam trains hard all of his life to be able to get a ticket to the USC baseball training center where not all but most of the kids go all the ways to the pros or higher.
This book is told in a third person point of view and I like how it is because this book I believe would be very confusing with it’s multiply characters, many settings, and very unique story lines behind both characters.
The baseball field. I think this is a good symbol because it is what the book is centered around. It is also a symbol to the thing that both main characters both love to do and play.
I would recommend this book to kids ages of 6 to 11 because while being a good story it is considerably short with a very straight forward set of happening events this story isn’t very complex but is a good small read.
