The following months where a big mess.Then Darrell sees a wrestling flyer and decides to join. As Darrell becomes more fit over the next few months,there was a dance, Darrell takes Amber to the dance and runs home because he got thrown in the trash can. A few days later he decides to confront Tyray and starts wrestling Tyray. While Darrell wrestled him Darrell broke Tyray's wrist.They went to the office and then Tyray got suspended.Then he and his friends had a good rest of the year. ( He is a little worried about facing someone else.)

The Character

Darrell starts out as a boy that is a little too small for his age,but when he gets to California he runs into Tyray. Then, he finds himself working out and joining the wrestling team. He also has feelings for a girl,so he changes his attitude a little.(Definitely around her.) So Darrell changes physically and emotionally. Another reasons is he wants to prove his uncle wrong about not being a muscular man.

My comparison is a show I watch on television, it is about a girl named Riley. She does not move but she gets bullied and doesn't tell anyone. Then she finally gets fed up with it and tells her friends. After her friends know,she confronts her and she finally stops. Instead of physically she verbally tells her to stop.Then she feels a lot better about herself just like Darrell.
