It's about time I did one of these again, aye? I thought I might as well close 2010 properly.
In a recent discussion of the Harry Potter series, I remarked that I tend to like J.K. Rowling's supporting characters much more than her leads: that, in fact, my least favourite of her characters are Harry himself and Professor Dumbledore. =P But I think most writers with a love of ensemble casts have a real gift for creating supporting characters. (No comment on the leads.) So today I feature a very minor character (or so we think) from one of my favourite YA novels of all time. I do like the heroine of this one, but I confess I like him much, much more.
