Six For Sunday: Good Role Models

Hello Friends! It’s been a wee while since I last posted – my finger met with an unfortunate accident involving a hammer and I have been unable to type! But I’m back, it’s Sunday and it’s time to look at Steph’s Six for Sunday prompt of the week: characters who are good role models. Here are my six:

1. Jack from Jack of Hearts and Other Parts by Lev A.C. Rosen – Jack is a guy who knows what he wants, is honest and open about it, is sex positive and very safe about it.

2. Charles from Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell – Charles is just a brilliant guardian. He encourages Sophie to be true to herself and to follow her heart and he protects her at all costs. I love him.

3. The mum from Run, Rebel by Manjeet Mann – I don’t want to spoiler, but this mam goes through some things. She’s so strong and determined and I really admire her.

4. The mum from Afterlove by Tanya Byrne – again, no spoilers especially because this book isn’t out yet, but I loved the mum. You can just see how much she loves her daughter and it’s wonderful.

5. Michael from The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta – Michael is another great character who follows his heart and is true to himself (are you sensing a pattern in my list?)

6. Sam from Sam Wu by Katie and Kevin Tsang – I just love Sam. He’s scared of absolutely everything, but he is so brave in facing his fears and in helping his friends to face theirs.

Those are my six picks for good role models. Who would make your list?
