ROOFTOP BY PAUL VOLPONI
There are multiple characters in the book Rooftop, but the main character and also the protagonist of this book is called Clay. He is an African-American teenager that is attending a school called Daytop, which has students that have had problems with drugs. He is a nice kid who wishes to help his cousin, Addison, with his drug problems. He reminds me of my uncle because when his cousin was a drug dealer, he managed to give him enough advice to make him stop and get an actual job.
The antagonist of this book would be Addison's choices. He is also a teenage African-American attending Daytop. His choices are the antagonist of this book because he chooses to drug deal which is the opposite of what he's supposed to achieve while attending Daytop. This character reminds me of my dad's old friend because when he was younger, he would drug deal in which got him into trouble.
PROTAGONIST'S MEMORABLE MOMENT
The protagonist, Clay, had a memorable moment when he first saw Addison walking into his class after so many years without seeing him after Addison's mother forbidden him from talking to Clay.
PROTAGONIST IMPORTANT ACTION
Clay's important action would be to stay off of drugs, which is the reason he is attending Daytop. Staying off of drugs will help him achieve his goal by staying clean and following Daytop's rules.
The antagonist's, Addison's, problem in the beginning is that he is having trouble staying away and selling drugs.
ANTAGONIST'S IMPORTANT ACTION
Addison's important action would be to stop dealing drugs. This will help him achieve his goal by following Daytop's rules and will also solve his problem with him always getting into trouble.
OTHER CHARACTERS' PERSPECTIVE ON MAIN CHARACTERS
In the other hand, Clay does not view Addison the same way. Clay views Addison as someone who needs help getting away from drug dealing.
MAIN CHARACTERS ON OTHER CHARACTERS
The antagonist views Clorox, a new student at Daytop and Addison's old friend, as someone who takes pride in gang. Even though Clorox is not a good kid, Addison still admires him because he puts his gang before anyone, even himself.
MY IMPRESSIONS OF PROTAGONIST CHARACTER
One thing I like most about the protagonist is that he stays away from trouble. I like this because it shows that he cares about his future. One thing I dislike about the protagonist is that he is shy. I dislike this because he could be easily persuaded to do bad things. I would say this character is like me because I care about the choices I make that will reflect my future.
MY IMPRESSIONS OF THE ANTAGONIST CHARACTER
Characterization: In the End...
