Calvin is definitely not the main character, but he is an integral part of the journey across space that he, Meg, and Charles Wallace take. He is a sport, and I love him for using that word in that way and for not taking the Murrays at face value; he is trust but discerning, and fiercely loyal and protective.<br /><br />Lori's pick:&nbsp; The secondary character that keeps popping up in my mind is <b>Dill from <i>To Kill a Mockingbird</i></b>.&nbsp; He is hilarious, but he's also kind of tragic in that he's been totally abandoned by his parents and doesn't really realize that.&nbsp; He's also the impetus behind getting Boo Radley to come outside, which is a huge part of the story.&nbsp; I think that everyone had that neighbor kid who was like Dill.&nbsp; Harper Lee did-- she had Truman Capote.<br /><br />Jamie's Pick: <b><i>Cinna from The Hunger Games</i></b> was such a favorite secondary character of mine! While I loved the movie so much I hate how you didn't just how special Cinna was like in the book. He was just so vibrant and really supported Katniss well.<br /><br />Kimberly's Pick: <b><i>Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter</i>.</b> I adore him. He goes from the forgetful boy who is constantly bullied, to an absolutely amazing person. He becomes as important as any of the leads. We see him grow even in just the first book, he not only stands up to his bullies, but to his friends as well. As Dumbledore said. <i>'It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.'</i><br /><br />Kimberly's Second Pick: (This could also be "Kimberly's Mother's Pick" as she is the one who inspired it. I asked her who she'd pick and she immediately responded with <b>"Diana Barry"</b>. Sweet, loyal, earnest <i><b>Diana Barry.</b></i> <b>Best friend to Anne (with an 'E') of Green Gables</b>. Whether she is standing by the side of her bosom friend, getting accidentally drunk off of what she believed to be Raspberry Cordial (it was currant wine, oops),<i> </i>or being her sweet, day dreaming self, she is ever so lovable. She is the best friend anyone could ask for, and is the perfect companion for Anne.</div><h4><span style="font-weight: normal;">Paula's Pick: <b><i>Spader and Loor from the Pendragon series</i></b>. I'm not sure what all to say about Spader. He joins Bobby Pendragon in the second book and is such a loyal companion who is always upbeat and looking on the bright side even when things are not looking good for our characters. The only thing to say about Loor is that she is so incredibly B.A. - I would have loved for the whole series to revolve around her.<br /><br />Jamie's Pick: <i><b>Finnick from The Hunger Games</b></i>: AHHHHH FINNICK &lt;33<br /><br />Jamie's Pick: <i><b>Phoebe from The Catcher in the Rye</b></i>: Phoebe is Holden's 10 year old sister and I loved her so much! Wise beyond her years but not annoyingly so IMO. </span></h4><div>Kelly's Pick: <i style="font-weight: bold;">Brienne of Tarth from A Song of Fire and Ice series </i>is an amazing character who embraces her quirks and disadvantages to become perhaps the strongest and most loyal character in the entire series.</div><div><br /></div><div>Kelly's Pick: <b><i>The Weasley twins from Harry Potter</i></b>: Almost more than anything, I wish we could read through this series from the viewpoint of Fred and George Weasley. They are the two wittiest and most hilarious characters I think I've ever come across!</div><div><br /></div><h4 style="text-align: center;"><i>Who are YOUR favorite secondary characters?</i></h4><br /><br /><link href="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/styles/default.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link><script src="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/loc_en.js"></script><script src="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/opt_defaults.js"></script><script src="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/misterlinky.js"></script><script src="http://www.blenza.com/linkies/autolink.php?mode=standard&amp;owner=brokeandbookish&amp;postid=27Aug2013" type="text/javascript"></script><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-o-Y4MmmLh4g/UKqw_hIFU1I/AAAAAAAABjY/3Y667U-WWXE/s1600/toptentuesday.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="178" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-o-Y4MmmLh4g/UKqw_hIFU1I/AAAAAAAABjY/3Y667U-WWXE/s320/toptentuesday.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-5vVphH3oscA/UgmRoakwXUI/AAAAAAAAB5I/6VwYdXtczjg/s1600/13597696.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><br /></a></div></div><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">&nbsp;<span style="font-family: Verdana;">For a list of past and future Top Ten Tuesday topics and to find out more about Top Ten Tuesday, </span><a href="http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: #3a7971; font-family: Verdana;">click here</span></a><span style="font-family: Verdana;">!</span><br /><br />Tahleen's pick: There are so many wonderful secondary characters all over the place, but I'm going to go with one of my favorite books (as I usually do, but whatever). <b>Calvin O'Keefe from <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i> by Madeleine L'Engle</b>.
