Mike Lupica
Safe at Home
Pg. 96
I would say that Nicks antagonist could be himself or baseball. Nick is really struggling with himself and moving up to the varsity team. He is trying to hard to prove himself to the team, and he will not just play the game. Therefore, baseball could be the conflict. Protagonist would be Nick, the main character with the problem. Nick is trying to get his coach to send him back to JV, but the coach is making him work hard, and helping him after practice so have that spot. Nick needs to stop fighting himself and play the game.


  1. Why does he want to go back to the JV team? I don't understand that. That is nice that his coach is willing to help him with his baseball. I bet his coach sees potential in him that is why he is helping him maybe? Well hopefully he will be able to just have fun with baseball and not worry so much. Hope you enjoy the rest of the book! :)

  2. Does he have anyone that believes in him or doesn't want him to play? They could be considered antagonists too.
