Reading is an important part of everyday life. That’s why me and my mom read the book “The Glory Field” and had an interview.

I said the falling action was Lizzy, Lem, and Joshua escaping from the plantation; my mom said that it was Lem and Joshua joining the army. We came to an agreement that them going to the army was the resolution and them escaping was the falling action. Now our main conflict was “Should Lizzy had gone along with Lem and Joshua?”.
