The intro: Is when Vinnie's dad dies and she goes to his funeral.
Rising Action:i think the rising action is when she meets Lupe and they start to become friends.
Climax: Is when she does something bad and what is does is take her bobby pin and writes L.M. on some one car.
Falling action: Is when the teacher finds out.
Resolution: Well i think Mason will start to talk again and maybe they might move back to D.C.

The thing that is in flip- flop girls is about like when she was doing lots of thing that she is not soup to do is the thing that she had took some thing or did some thing that she can get in big treadle with her people.The setting was she wrote bass on the example trees and the water.

The introduction- Vinnie's father dies.This is the part when Mason stops talking and not eating right.

The rising action- When Vinnie and her family has to move to Brownsville with grandma Mathews.

The climax- When Vinnie gets into big trouble because she decides to I think carve the first letter in each her first and lats name L.M. witch is her real name.

That is all that i know and remember about the book.

i think that she is going to start dealing with the fact that Mr.Clayton gets married.So he talks to her and says that he knows that it was her who scraped his car.Then that he knows what is going on so he is going to take the fact that she did that.maybe he will say that he has been trying to wreck the car so he can get a new one.maybe he will say he is a little mad but some what happy.then maybe he goes and gives the car to the dealer and gets a new one.I also think that he and her will be very good friends after the talk he has with her and then maybe he will let her meet his wife. also when she was saying that he might have picked her up with his sporty red car but maybe just maybe he did not pick her up with his sporty red car. Maybe she came up to him and he married a very not to appealing woman.

I think that the introduction is when Vinnie dad dies and when they move. Then I think the rising action is when her family needs to move to Brownsville with their grandma. Next I think that the climax is when Vinnie wants to write her name on a car with a pin. Then I think that the falling action is when her teacher finds out that she did that. And then I think that the resolution is when Mason might want to talk again. That is what I think.

Vinnie moves to Brownsville and Vinnie and Matthew’s father died. Then next thing you know Vinnie goes to school to a new school and no one is nice to her accept for Mr. Clayton and Lupe. When she finds out that Mr. Clayton is getting married she is upset. Vinnie takes her bob pin and engraves her name inside the bob pin. Then because she yelled at Matthew and telling him that she never what to see him again, Matthew runs away. I predict that in chapter fourteen Vinnie will find Matthew and tell him that she sorry and that she loves him. I also predict that Vinnie and Matthew will have a relationship. I predict that because sooner on later Vinnie has to find Matthew, also if Vinnie did not care about Matthew she would not be looking for him.

The introduction of Flip Flop Girl will be moving to Brownsville. I think it’s the introduction because that’s where everything starts. I think the raising action for Flip Flop Girl is when Vinnie meets Lupe and they became friends. The climax is when Vinnie takes a pen and write her real initials, which are L.M on her teacher’s car. Also the falling action is when the teacher’s finds out some one wrote on his car. And finally the denouement might be that they move out Brownsville.

Flip Flop Girl

In the beginning of the story Vinnie was a sad girl because her father died and. Then she has to move to Washington D.C. from Brownsville and leave all her friends and go live with her step grand mother because. They were poor because the father died.Then Vinnie feels even sadder because she has to leave all of her best friends in Washington D.C.. Then when she moves to Brownsville. She meets a girl named Lupe and she starts to like a teacher named Mr. Clayton. Then when Mr. Clayton gives Lupe a pair of shoes and Lupe starts to like Mr. Clayton. Vinnie gets mad she scratches Mr. Clayton's car and she scraped L and M on it. So I predict that Vinnie’s going to get in a lot of trouble or Lupe might get the blame.

The exposition for Flip-Flop Girl is when Mason doesn’t speak anymore and when their dad dies because in the first chapter Mason was blocking Vinnie’s view of the T.V. and Mason said he didn’t care about the death of his father but when he went to the funeral her was tugging on his father and telling him to get up. The rising action was when Vinnie and Mason moved and went to a different school. Their mother talked to the principal about Mason’s problem and Mason already got Vinnie in trouble by knocking down a trashcan. The climax was when Vinnie took a pen and wrote her birth initials on Mr. Clayton’s car. With the initials LM Mr. Clayton thought it was Lupe. The falling action was when Vinnie had to go find Mason because he was with Vinnie when they walked home and when Vinnie woke up her Grandmother said Mason wasn’t there. I think the resolution is that when Vinnie was trying to write a poem she had to give it up because maybe Mr. Clayton moved to a different school
