Wild cards

Wild cards takes place in California and Illinois during the present the main conflict in the story is Derek has to deal with him being expelled from school and with his step mom being pregnant and moving back to Illinois


The main character is Derek. Three words to describe the main character are that he is a football player, in love, and a prankster. the character is motivated by a girl named Ashtlyn also working out helps him stay motivated. i liked the main character because Derek tried to help Ashtlyn out when the other football players tee-peed her house. the relationship between Derek and Ashtlyn is that they are related but deep down they have feeling for each others.


The theme of the novel is to never judge someone by there cover one example that supprs the theme is Ashtlyn was getting judged cause she was the only girl on the football team. Another example is Derek was judging Ashtlyn by what she eats and the way she acts. a final example that supports the theme is derek was getting judged by the way he makes jokes
