Characters

Pablo O’Ryan is brave, bookish, and quiet. He doesn’t have a lot of friends, but the few he has are loyal and true. He gets good grades, gets along with his parents, but is bored with school and his small town. He is the kind of kid who can be overlooked by grown-ups, or by more popular kids, who don’t take the time to find his courage and generosity.

 

Thora Gamble is pretty, athletic, and always alert. She loves the outdoors and anything connected with it. Thora is a practical thinker, and hopes to be a geologist or engineer when she gets older. Like Pablo, she is also bored with the small town of Zion Falls, but her limitless curiosity keeps her energized and happy. Her closest friend is her brother, Bryce, but she would like to be closer to Pablo.

 
 

Zak Fisher is tall and muscular. As the quarterback of the school’s football team, he’s also a bit of a jock, and will undoubtedly be prom king in time. He’s friendly, caring, and a take-charge type of kid, but he’s not cocky about it. People expect him to be a leader, but secretly, he would prefer to follow. Once he makes a friend, he is loyal to them for life.

Louise Tooker is strong-willed and independent for her age. She is used to spending most of her time with her father, who likes having Louise with him when he goes hunting or works on his cars. Louise is friendly and gentle, and loves her pet rabbits. Despite being very brave, she is also afraid of the dark.
