30 day book challenge- Day 25- A character who you can relate to the most

Darrell Rivers from Mallory Towers is probably the character I relate to the most. Perhaps less so in the last few years, but up until that point- without a doubt. It was actually only when, in a fit of nostalgia, I re-read the book that I really started to identify with Darrell and her growth into a young woman. Initially short tempered (cough, like yours truly) she gradually matures through the series- something most teenage girls tend to identify with. Darrell’s attachment to and enjoyment of school was one I also felt, not to mention that the books in general accurately depict the emotional aspect of people you have lived with in boarding school-people you will always share a bond with simply for having lived side by side with them for years on end.

  1. I love looking back at what I read as a young adult. It’s really lovely to find how I grew and how the characters grew and how we’re really similar.
