posted by soe 2:35 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to share fictional characters we’d like to check in on. Here are some of mine:

  1. Isola Pribby from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows
  2. Felicity from A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
  3. The teen protagonists of The Illuminae Files series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristof
  4. Will from Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
  5. Starr from The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  6. Ruth from Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
  7. Claudia from The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
  8. Charles Wallace from A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
  9. Mary from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgsen Burnett
  10. Miranda from When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

How about you? Are there characters whose lives you’d like to peek into even after the happily ever after takes place?

Would love to know what is going on with Starr from The Hate U Give

I was just thinking about The Secret Garden. Not that I want to imagine characters enduring war, per se, but also…I am curious to know how everyone made it through the World Wars (I choose to believe no one we know died, of course) and endured the societal change after the second one, in particular.
