My favorite character in this book would have to be the main character Melinda Sordino. The reason that I like this character the best is because she is true to herself and her thoughts. She goes through high school being an outcast and she knows about it but she doesn't really care. She wears unusual clothing and is awkward, but she doesn't care what others think about her at all which I think is a very good trait to have. I do wish I was better at not caring so much about what others think about me. Sometimes my actions and feelings are based on what other people are doing and I wish I was better at staying true to myself.
