The story that I read is called The Lottery By Shirley Jackson. The story starts out on June 27th and it was so nice and sunny, but it doesn’t end very nice and happy. The main characters are Bobby and Harry Jones, Dickie Delacroix, Steve Summers, Clyde Dunbar, Janey Dunbar, Horace Dunbar, Old Man Warner, Joe Adams, Mr. Allen, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Bentham, Mrs. Graves, Mrs. Delacroix, Tessie Hutchinson, Bill Hutchinson, Don Hutchinson, Eva Hutchinson. What moves the story forward is you want to know what happens at the end of the story. I liked that it was kind of interesting to find out who got the black dot.
