Quarter 4, Blog 3?

Kyle Weber
Larry Bird

An example of foreshadowing in this book is a scene in which the author hints at the life on camous at Indiana University. He says something along the lines of not knowing what it would really be like. It was very obvious that he would transfer out of IU. And earlier in the book, he said that he really like Indiana State's campus, but he really wanted to play for Bob Knight. This was a relatively subtle clue. I already knew that Larry Bird played collegiate basketball at Indiana State, but for somene who didn't know, this clue might have been tough to decipher.


  1. I have a connection with this book! I went to Indiana University for a soccer showcase last winter, and unlike the character in your book I really liked it and thought it was cool, but then again I have never been to Indiana State's campus.

  2. It sounds like you really enjoy reading this book and making the connections.

  3. Sounds like a good book. I agree with what nick said you made good connections. I guess it is cool that you knew in the begining what was going to happen but it only sounds like there was one part that really foreshadow for that character. I wouldn't think it would be a big deal on what university he went to.
