Long Answer

1. Foreshadowing is used by the author to hint at problems that appear later. One example is the character “Dog,” toward whom Julian reacts with immediate suspicion. Julian’s suspicion of Dog’s attitude and behavior when they meet foreshadows upcoming distrust and conflict between them when Dog steals the compass. (Various chapters)

2. Julian is the protagonist of the story. The antagonist can be several characters, including Caballo, Ramirez, or Dog. The climax of the story is the boat sailing to Havana (with a small climax in Chapter 41 regarding the pin), and the resolution is that Julian is living with his family (minus his father) in Connecticut. Students also might note as a resolution detail that Julian receives the swallow pin back from Tomás as promised. (Various chapters)
