Top 10 Tuesday — “Minor” Characters

26 Sep

Happy Tuesday! I was not really feeling this week’s TTT (too much going on to think that hard), so I am again twisting the topic and featuring books with “minor” characters — characters under the age of 18 who star in or make a big impact on the book. (Some of the covers even have children on them!) It was fun to look back at books that have a child/teenager’s point of view. An even dozen , there are lots of genres to choose from. I hope one piques your interest.

    I love that you gave us your top minor characters rather who needs a book. Sometimes they don’t need one, but are just amazing side characters.
