Who do you know or know of that fits the label hero? The solution is that Palmer just doesn't wring them. Similar to another of Jerry Spinelli's books, Stargirl, it tells young readers that they don't have to give in to peer pressure. Plot[ edit ] A young boy named Palmer lives in a town called Waymer, which celebrates an annual Pigeon Day by releasing pigeons from crates to be shot in the air.
However, such "manliness" is challenged by the females in the story whom all establish a sense of power over Ryan Dean. Then he lets the pigeon into his room because it returned. He apologizes to Megan and Chas and Megan accepts and reveals she is in love with him, and Chas is admirable at Ryan Dean's courageousness but reminds him that he still hates him. He feels as though this may have ruined their friendship. Everything works out great for our narrator, Ryan Dean, but the gay friend I don't like referring to him as this but I don't want to say the name in case you do end up reading it is used as a freakin' plot device not unlike the Manic Pixie Dream Girl that also shows up in this book as Ryan Dean's love interest. Ryan Dean and Chas become close friends and Kevin becomes somewhat of a peacemaker between the two of them.
You would see clear skies and no birds to be seen. Palmer, wants to help the pigeons and he himself has his own pigeon. Later, they do this to Palmer.

Is that different? The morning after the dance, Ryan Dean realizes that Joey had not been present for both his calculus and economic classes, and when he asks Kevin, he remarks that Joey hadn't come home after the party and debated on whether he might've run away, but his car was still at the school's lot.

Losing something is sometimes really worth it. Picture Book. Ryan Dean returns to a dark and eerie O-Hall where he encounters a drunken Casey threatening to kill him. If they don't feel something is right, they need to voice their opinion.
Along the line write the events that brought the two characters together. Palmer thinks about the bird a lot and sinks into a state of depression. Although the shooting ceremony described in this book is probably unique, there are many places where birds have become pests in a community and various steps have been taken to control them.
This will prevent him from having to deal with his friends questions about Nipper when he flies over them. Later, they do this to Palmer.
