In The Elevator, Martin is a weak, clumsy, 12 year old who is skinny and nonathletic. He is the type of person who would usually get picked on and bullied. He isn’t strong and would be the perfect example of a person who just goes somewhere because they were told to. He gets controlled easily.
I think the hook in this story is when it talks about the discomfort of being in the elevator because it makes me want to know what happens in the elevator.
