I read the book Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm by Megan McDonald. In my opinion it was a very enjoyable book! I am going to inform you why I think that.
Every book has an exposition or, in other words, an introduction. In the introduction it generally explains or lets you know who the main character is, where they are , and the position or situation they are in.
In Judy Moody it explains that she is the main character she claims to have a lucky penny that, of course, gives her good luck. It also tells you that she is in a restaurant with her family.
Next , we have the rising action. As you can tell from the title this is when the tension starts to rise and you can sort of feel like something good or bad is going to happen.
I could feel the tension rising when Judy kept getting really fabulous luck I wasn’t expecting some of the things that happened.
The climax is when the most tension is “in the air,” or when the most important part is happening. That would be when Judy’s friend Jessica invited her to go with her to Washington D.C. to watch her pig while she was in a spelling bee. Along with that, a “mini climax” would be when she was watching the pig– it ran off and Judy couldn’t find it.
After the climax is the falling action. That is when everything is starting to settle down and there is not as much tension as there was before.
That would be when Judy found the pig and went back to the hotel room. As well as when Jessica came back from the spelling bee to tell them her place.
Then. in the end is the resolution this is how it ended up or how thing went for everyone.
In Judy Moody, it turns out that Jessica won the spelling bee, Judy got to see the President of the United States, and it turned out she lost the penny BUT she still had her good luck so it ended up that she didn’t need the penny, she was naturally lucky!
Those are the five parts of a plot and that is the story of Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm!
