It seems that in all the books I've recently read, the characters have not really stood out to me. How sad is that.
But Cricket, from a book I read months ago, still stands out.
So here's the problem, I read it long enough ago (I know months doesn't really seem that long, but it's long enough , believe me!) that I can't remember all the Cricket details.
I think he had dark hair that stood up everywhere.
I DO remember that he is tall and lanky. In fact, he made me think of lanky in a whole new way.
I don't remember the color of his eyes.
But I do remember that he was nice and sweet and charming and clever and smart and patient and present and perfectly imperfect.
And of course I remember the rubber bands on the wrist. :)
Mostly I remember that he just seemed to truly fit the "boy next door" characterization, and I liked that. I liked that a lot!
As you know, I usually like to find a picture of a celebrity that I think would fit the character for the subject of my post. I found it funny that Nicholas Hoult (whose picture I posted just the other day) was suggested in a few blog posts... but the one I liked much better is found in this post. She suggests this guy:
|Matthew Atkinson as|
What character is on your mind this week and/or month?
