Rebound by Kwame Walker is a book that develops through Charlie Bell. Charlie Bell is the main character who travels upstate New York to visit his grandparents. We see many different sides to Charlie. We see how Charlie goes from having a lot of built-up anger due to the loss of his dad but lets off a little of that steam when he talks to his mom for the first time about the loss. We also see his opinion on spending the summer with his grandparents. Charlie is fighting the internal conflict of losing his dad and not being on the best terms with his mom. Charlie was sent to live with his grandparents in the first place because he and his mother needed to spend less time together. There was a lot of heat between him and his mother and kept on developing so Charlie’s mother had no other option but to send him with his grandparents. Charlie and his mother are now on better terms and we see how Charlie changes over time from being a one side-seeing person to calming down and seeing both sides.
