Who is the antagonist in "The Face on the Milk Carton"? Also, what is the climax and what is the type of conflict.

Please and thank you.

Please check this site.


Thank you for the site, but it still doesnt answer my questions.

An antagonist is the character who opposes the protagonist. In this novel, who do you think opposes Janie? Is it her birth family, her adopted family -- or perhaps Janie herself?

The climax comes near the end of the story. It's the defining point when the conflict is resolved. What do you think is the climax in this novel?

There are three main types of conflict: man against man, man against himself, and man against nature. Which type of conflict do you think is used in this story?

If you post your answers, we'll be glad to critique them.

Well i think the antagonist is Janie herself because she has to make a lot of decisions like of whether to tell her parents what she has found out or not. I think the climax is when Janie goes to the attic and finds her old dress and papers of Hannah. Then her parents tell her that Hannah is her mother. Since she has a lot of decisions to make, I guess the conflict is man against himself, so will it be internal conflict?

Your analysis is excellent. :-)

You're right. The conflict is an internal conflict.

Good job!

Thanks you so much for all your help!

You're welcome.

I'm sorry, i have another question about the book. Would the point of view be third person omniscient because Janie knows how her parents feel about the truth of Janie's past?

Does Janie know this because of what her parents told her? Does the author tell you what the parents are thinking? Very few books are written in the third person omniscient.

Please double check to make sure that the author tells you everyone's thoughts. Usually the author only tells you the protagonist's thoughts -- limited third person -- not omniscient third person.

Oh that makes more sense because when her parents tell Janie about Hannah, her parents keep telling her about how much they love her. Thank you, again!

You're welcome. I hope you enjoyed this book. :-)

what do i do

this is the worlds worst website.


The antagonist is bot Janie it is her parents because they keep a secret that they are not there real parents but grandparents.

I still don't understand antagonist, pls elaborate a little more. Thanks so so much!
