In her shoes ~ 21 ~

Every Tuesday I will pick a character I've read about recently, perhaps even the week before, and try putting myself in her shoes. What things would I do differently? What have I learned from her behavior? That kind of thing. You are welcome to participate if you want, just please link back, so we could build a nice community of followers. Thanks!!! :)

This week I'd love to share with you one special girl. She will always remain in my heart as a fighter. Not a military style fighter, but a fighter against the odds. Her name is Echo Emerson. And she's starring Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry.

Echo Emerson was the lost girl. She needed confidence, she needed strength, but most of all she needed her memory back. But, of course that came with a price - gaining her memory could cost her her sanity. And still, she was brave enough to risk it, because what is a person with no memory? Especially when that memory holds the key to one's peaceful night sleep... I loved the way Echo changed, evolved and grew during the span of this novel. She started out as a shy, insecure, scared girl, who needed not only moral support. And then a certain boy's influence, along with her own fighting personality, lifted her up to an entirely new level. Her insecurities were forgotten, her selfishness and stubbornness as well, and she found a way to find the truth, to forgive and forget. I was completely blown away by Echo's mature way of thinking.

Because of who she was, and who she turned out to be in the end, I wouldn't change one single bit of Echo's character. I'm glad I could share a tiny bit of her fictional life :)

How about you? Whose shoes would you like to step into today?
