This was actually really, really hard. Because most of the main characters I read about have miserable lives. Like, they’re constantly being attacked (by people from other Districts, by demons, by fairies, you name it), are on the run, are starving, are psychotic, the list goes on. But, alas, here are a few I’d like to swap with, just ever so briefly!
Jessica Darling (Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty), obviously, so I could kiss Marcus Flutie. (Husband, if you’re reading this, I’m just kidding! Mostly!)
Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass by Sara J. Maas), not so I could be an assassin, but just so I could feel really, truly kick-ass and strong for a day.
Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Divergent by Veronica Roth), so I can be fearless for a day.
Lola Nolan (Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins), so I can wear an outrageously fabulous dress/costume for the day and feel no shame.
Hannah Ward (Bunheads by Sophie Flack), so I could dance dance dance!
Jasmine (Amplified by Tara Kelly), because I am so tone deaf, it’d be nice to be a rock star for a day.
Carly (Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar), so I could ride the waves (wayyy too uncoordinated to manage this in real life).
