In Rebound by Kwame Alexander Charlie is trying to figure out his life with his father died and his mom being over protective. In the summer his mom decides to send him to his grandparents house for the whole summer to keep him out of trouble.
The most complex character so far is Charlie, even though he hasn’t completely matured in the novel he is showing signs of getting better. In Rebound there are external conflicts but also internal. The external being Charlie vs his mom and how she is making him leave all his friend and go to his grandparents house for the summer. But it is also internal by Charlie trying to deal with his dad being dead and not being able to cope with that and confused why it happened.
