Character Analysis

The main character is Nick Diamond. Three words to describe the main character are Bravely, funny, and smart. The character is motivated by his older brother Herbert diamond, finding the diamond, & becoming a very good detective. I like the main character because he is only 13 years old, and he is a very hard working detective. The relationship between Nick & Herbert is very good because they both have each others back and work well together as brothers.

Theme

The theme of the novel is teamwork, and hard work pays off. One example that supports the theme is every time the diamond brothers were in a conflict they always got up, and working back up again. Another example they were both a perfect team by never giving up. A third example from the book is they became better brothers by helping each other. A final example that supports theme is they were became better detectives by solving clues.

Connections

Teens can't really relate to this novel because in this novel is basically about two brothers being detectives, and teens aren't really detectives until there adults, or just never become detectives.
