Welcome back to the YA Superlatives 2012 blogfest! Today we're talking about some of the most memorable characters in YA books this year. Here are my picks:
Jason from Meant to Be
Jason was always making everyone laugh in this book with his crazy antics!
Most Likely To Become A Rock Star
Sam is always reincarnated with amazing musical abilities. Maybe in his next life he'd be a rock star?
Most Likely To Start A Riot
Pia in Origin
Pia's very existence is enough to cause a riot, especially because of the choices she makes.
Justina from Ditched
Justina mentions that in the past she kissed a lot of boys, so I bet her flirting skills are awesome.
Fashion King and/or Queen
The ladies in The Friday Society
Each of the girls in this book go through many great fashion changes, and even create their own superhero costumes!
Girl You'd Most Want For Your BFF
Code Name Verity
Code Name Verity
I don't think you could ever find a more loyal friend than either of these two!
Boy You Wish You'd Dated in High School
This is probably no surprise if you've met my husband - I'm a sucker for smart, cute British guys!
Most Likely to Become President
Prince Kai from Cinder
This is sort of cheating because he's a prince, but I think he has the skills and charisma to be President too.
Evie from Endlessly
Between her pink Taser, her love of a cheesy teen TV show, and her relationship with a mostly invisible guy, Evie is pretty darn quirky.
Villain You Love to Hate
Mr. Bittner in Break My Heart 1000 Times
This is one of the few YA books that has the villain's POV included too - and he's super creepy!
Favorite Parental Figure
Most of the parents in Something Like Normal
I picked this one as my favorite family drama, so it makes sense to add it here too. I loved Travis's mom, Harper's dad, and his best friend's mom(s). So nice to see three different supportive families in one book!
Hazel & Augustus in The Fault In Our Stars
They're both nerds in different ways, but still the coolest nerds I can think of. Love them!
