About the novel...
Protagonist vs. Antagonist
In my book Tom is the protagonist and is in 7th grade he's much larger than most kids and is very sweaty. But Tom doesnt care about looks and will be nice to just about anyone he meets.
The antagonist in my book would be mostly every kid in Mrs. Tracy's class because they all make fun of Tom and Jessica
Jeff is a main character and and antagonist because he fights with Tom and makes up rumors about Tom and Jessica. But he was also Tom's bestfriend.
Jessica is a new girl in Mrs.Tracy's class and shes very shy because she resently got in a car accident and he body was burned alive. So Jessica doesn't look like most girls and she has to deal with being made fun of and it's a hard change because she used to be very pretty.
Connections to Greek Myths....
- My book connects to Thesus and Perseus because they fall in love but their love is forbidden. In fire girl Tom and Jessica like each other but Toms best friend forbids it.
- Jessica connects Hades because she's burned and lived from it. So her and Hades have fiery looks. Jessica also is looks like Medusa because nobody wants to look at her.
- Jeff also connects to Hades by doing devilish acts to make Tom not like Jessica.
- In Cupid and Euridicy, Cupid loves Euridisy but loses her to the under world (Hades). In fire girl Tom takes the place of cupid and loves Jessica but Jeff trys to ruin it by making up rumors.
