Maybe you've noticed, maybe you haven't but most books are about a boy or have a boy as a main character. Some examples include Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, Found, Heat, and numerous others (I could go on forever, well, at least a pretty long time.) These books are normally about a boy & his problems. (I'm not saying they are all about boys and their problems). There also books that go like this: Depressed boy meets girl. Girl helps boy. Boy is no longer depressed. Girl dies. And then of course the boy is depressed again. Some examples of these are Bridge to Tarabithia and Among the Hidden. There are books about girls, there are just less. Examples: Catherine Called Birdy, Yellow Star, and some others. Girls seem to be secondary characters most of the time. This can be maddening if, (like me) you are a girl.
Green Tip: "Save Electricity, It's our responsability."


  1. u forgot that after the girl dies the boy is usually depressed again.
