2 Description of two Main Characters Greg HeffleyRodrick HeffleyGreg is one of the main characters and is a static protagonist. He is static because he doesn’t change during the story. He has a crush on a girl named Holly Hills. At the end of the story, he finds out that she called him “Fregley.” He gave up on her after that and starting liking another girl. Greg is in middle school and has brown hair. Greg always hangs out with his best friend Rowley.Rodrick is a static antagonist and is one of the main characters. He is static because he is always up to trouble and picks on his brother Greg. He plays in a band called the “Loaded Diaper.” Rodrick has brown hair and is in high school. He hangs out with all of the bad boys.
3 Setting:The main setting of the story is Greg’s and Rowley’s house. They are the main settings because this is where most of the story occurs. They play video games and have sleepovers.
4 Conflict:The first conflict of this story happened when Greg’s dad wanted to send Greg to Spag Union. Greg didn’t want to go because they used one room for showers without walls. Also because he would get teased and would be away from the girl that he liked. This conflict was resolved when Greg saved his dad from humiliating himself in front of the neighborhood. In return Greg’s dad didn’t make him go to Spag Union. The second conflict was when Greg couldn’t get the girl that he liked to go out with him. Greg tried everything but nothing worked. This conflict was resolved when she called him “Fregley” to his face. Also, when he met the new girl named Trista that lived in his neighborhood.
5 PredictionI predicted that Greg was going to give up on his crush and find someone that was more in his league. My prediction was correct because he did meet some one new but not really in his league. She was a new kid and was popular at her old school.
