Erik VS Paul

Although Paul and Erik Fisher are brothers they are both very different . Erik is a senior,football sensation, who everyone seems to admire. He will do what ever it takes to succeed including getting into trouble. Paul on the other hand is a very shy, middle schooler and enjoys playing soccer. He feels like everyone only knows him as "Erik's little brother" and that he will never be as good as Erik is at football in soccer.

Mike Costello's Death

After Mike's death the Costello family stayed home mourning their son. Joey Costello didn't go to school nor soccer practice throughout the week, and the family wouldn't come out of their house. When Paul noticed how sad the Costello's were from Mike's death he started to think about how he would feel if Erik had died instead of Mike, and he wasn't sure about his feelings. Mrs. Fisher finally decided to take matter into her own hands and held a football reunion at her house to discuss a change in the football practice. At the reunion she brought up the danger of playing football when lightning strikes and most of the families agreed and decide to take it into consideration. Then before leaving, Mr. Bridges (the principle) talked to the families about having a tree planted in the front of the school dedicated to Mike Costello. All the families agreed with him and left.


Some effects of MOYA issues in this book are at the beginning, when Paul is nervous about moving. Paul starts to feel like it will be even harder to make friends in a new state, and that people will think he is weird. Then once the Fisher family moved to Tangerine County everyone started to talk about how great Erik was, making Paul feel pressure to be as good as his older brother causing more MOYA stress. Lastly is when Mike died leaving the Costello family to be depressed and gloomy for weeks.
