The Fourth Stall
By: Chris Rylander
Christian (Mac) Barret
This represents how Mac is always trying to solve mysteries
Mac is obsessed with the Cubs and is trying to save up money for the hopefully World Series Game. (It doesn't happen)
Mac is always working and spending time in the school.
"Well, right now, as we speak, a few friends of mine are currently raiding the shed in your backyard. They're going to kidnap your dog, search your place, and take any money or information they find. They are going to call me in the next few minutes to confirm all of this, and if I don't answer, they'll know something is wrong, and they'll take your dog out to a field and leave him there, call the cops and give them all the stuff they found, and keep all of your cash," pg. 265
This as the book is coming to an end and Mac is sharing the plan with the antogonist. I feel as if this line shows how smart he is as well as how much he depends on his team throughout the book.
This is part of the setting because it's where his best friend, Vince, lives.
This is where his business and most of the story takes place.
This is where he first meets the "bad guy" Staples, as well as his home and where he hides his funds.
Mac shows resiliency because even though his business is failing he keeps fighting and doesn't give up.
