(U) Underdogs

I’m a sucker for the underdog. You know the one, that character who stands on the sidelines while the other one gets the glory? S/he’s usually the character who saves the day, but spends the majority of the book watching. I typically find myself rooting for these characters instead of the main one.

Some of my favorites:

  • Johnny Cade from The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
  • Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  • Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
  • Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

Who are some of your favorite underdogs?
