Characterize It (15)
Welcome to Characterize It, a meme held every Thursday and hosted by The YA Book Butterfly. It's a weekly meme, each week featuring a different characteristic. Basically, each week, she'll pick a new characteristic and participating bloggers as well as herself will choose a character that fits that description. For more information, look here.
This week's theme is most loving parents: parents that are actually around/a big part of the story.
Basically, Wendy Higgins is the queen of awesome parents. Both in her Sweet trilogy and in her recent self-published novel See Me, the parents are around, and they rock. So, yes, in Sweet Evil, her dad is a demon (a good demon that loves her though) and her mom is an angel that died in childbirth, but her step-mom ROCKS! Pattie is amazing, and her roll in Sweet Reckoning is a big one. In See Me, while her parents did marry Robyn off to someone, they were honest with her, and they didn't really have a choice in the matter. Throughout the story, Robyn's parents are there for her, and in the climax of the story, her parents play a large roll. I love when there are decent parents in a story, and Wendy Higgins does it beautifully!
Which series do you think has the best parents?
