Development(Setting and Characterization)
Characterization is also important in the book because you seem to know how a character reacts to a situation but he/she later changes throughout the book, even supporting characters. This is revealed in the text when it states,"He put his arms around Michael and hugged him even tighter than he had when he came in, and then in a whispery voice just barely loud enough for Michael Arroyo to hear, he said, Top that, dude." You might think this was Papi, Michael's father, but it's actually Manny's uncle, Timo, who is acting as Papi to Mr. Gibbs, the administrator of Michael's Little League, so Mr.Gibbs does not know Michael's greatest secret, his father has died. Characterization is vital to understand characters in the book.
