Cath - Fangirl
Cath is an epic fanficiton writer who prefers to - as she claims - write about life then live it.

“You’ve read the books?”
“I’ve seen the movies.”
Cath rolled her eyes so hard, it hurt. (Actually.) (Maybe because she was still on the edge of tears. On the edge, period.) “So you haven’t read the books.”
“I’m not really a book person.”
“That might be the most idiotic thing you’ve ever said to me.”

Jo - Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys
Jo is a writer who uses her words to comfort herself in times of struggle. She writes plays for her sisters and eventually goes to New York and starts a literary career of sorts.

“Take some books and read; that’s an immense help; and books are always good company if you have the right sort.”

Liesel - The Book Thief
In the beginning of the novel, Liesel does not know how to read, yet steals a book at her brother's funeral and becomes "The Book Thief". Throughout the book, the power of writing and sharing words becomes an act of defiance and growth.

"The best word shakers were the ones who understand the true power of words. They were the ones who could climb the highest. One such word shaker was a small, skinny girl. She was renowned as the best word shaker of her region because she knew how powerless a person could be without words."

Charlie - Perks of Being a Wallflower

Throughout the story Hazel's love of An Imperial Affliction shapes what happens to her. The book brings Hazel and Augustus together and even to another country.

Colin - An Abundance of Katherines
Throughout the book. Colin struggles with the fact that he is a child-prodigy, not a genius. In his mind, geniuses grow up to change the world - to matter - prodigies do not. Nevertheless, Colin is often found reading a book or telling others about the facts that he knows.

Scout - To Kill a Mockingbird
