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:
Jade from Feathermore
Jade is the main character in the YA paranormal romance Feathermore by Lucy Swing. She is a supernatural being but she doesn't know it yet for most of the novel. I can't say what she is because part of the intrigue of this book is that you really don't quite now, along with Jade, what she truly is. You can only take guesses. Let me say that considering the amount of mystery that surrounds Jade - and boy is there a lot of that - her reactions to things are really great. Personality wise, Jade is definitely someone with a great sense of humor. She is sarcastic girl but in a fun way, not in a dark/arrogant kind of way. She enjoys hanging out with her friends and family and she is not the most popular girl in the bunch but it doesn't bother her.
There is definitely not a thing I would change about Jade. I liked that she totally freaked out when she found out about her supernatural origin. She didn't just go "oh, yay, I'm more powerful than I thought and I'm not human. This is awesome!" - no. She was really shocked and conflicted at the fact that her entire existence and life was being altered by her true nature. And at the same time, she had a sense of humor about it as well. She just felt, real. Also, her reactions to her love interest and another one of the guys in the novel were hilarious. Like, her inner dialogue. I was just like, "what girl hasn't thought that when she see's a guy she likes or who she thinks is cute" and whereas it could've easily come off as maybe cliché or too much, with Jade, the way she thinks just comes off as funny. She definitely had - in my opinion - a fun personality, with just the right amount of sarcasm.
