Contrasts and Contradictions

2KB taught us that a Contrast and Contradiction is when the character changes the way they act.

When we find a Contrast and Contradiction we stop and ask ourselves the Anchor Question: Why does the character act like that?

For Example: In the book Mustache Baby the baby goes from being a good baby to being a bad baby.
