In Her Shoes is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Vanya at YA Story Teller. To participate, simply put yourself in the shoes of a heroine you've recently read about, and then talk about what you would do in her place, or what you've learned from her.
Featuring this week:
Anna Whitt from Sweet Evil
Anna Whitt is the main character in the YA paranormal romance Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (a book that I am currently reading & loving). Anna in this book is facing a lot of challenges. She is just learning about her background/origin which is a complex one. Anna definitely knows she is different as she can sense emotions and feel people's feelings but as the story unravels she learns exactly why this is and I have to say, I think she handles herself with grace.
I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but lets just say, this book has some of the best and intense angel lore I've read in quite a while and Anna is right smack in the middle of it.
Personality wise, Anna is a really sweet person. She has a innocence to her and though some people tend to be a bit skeptical about such characters as maybe being too unrealistic or naive, with Anna, you soon realize that behind her calm resolve to do the right thing, there lies a person with a darker side, inner demons. She faces a lot of temptations and she definitely has a inner struggle that many can relate to as she is not only battling her paranormal background, she is also facing challenges that many young people face on a daily basis. So, as a character I would not change a thing about Anna. I think she has a lot of dimensionality to her and I think she makes a great heroine.
