Point of View
"We should be at the dive sight by noon tomorrow," said Tommy. This is significant to the story because it tel us or gives us a hint at when they will be there and when it will happen in the book.
Metaphor: "Your a pig." Bick and Beck are always teasing on each other and Beck called Bick a pig. It also is important because it gives an idea on what they tease each other about.
Personification: "The wind whistled in the storm." It is significant because it tells us how bad the storm was.
Imagery: "Storm was biting back her tears." You can see her like sniffling and blinking a lot to do everything she can to not shed a tear.
Sensory Language: ''Beck and I were searching in the room for about twenty minutes for the map." They were using their eyes to look for the map.
