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:
Patti Whitt from Sweet Evil
Patti Whitt is the adoptive mother of the main character (Anna) in the YA paranormal romance Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (a book that I have recently finished reading - amazing). The reason why I chose to speak about her in this post is because she is an incredibly amazing character. A true heroine in all of the sense of the word. She is fear-less as a mother, a loving person, who is sharp and so classy in how she treats everyone.
It's rare to find a young adult book where they feature a parental figure so much and actually make them an integral part of the story. Personality wise, Patti is just an amazing female character. I would not change a thing about her. She is so selfless and protective but respectful of her daughter's decisions. And Patti in this book is facing incredibly intimidating situations (Anna's real parents are an angel and a demon) and Anna is not human, but nevertheless, Patti does not shy away from helping her daughter. She may be just human but she is always there making sure that she can do what she can in order to help protect Anna and her strength just shines all throughout this novel.
