My current WIP is Muse, originally a dual-voice YA, but now a single voice starring a male protagonist. ::GULP:: My previous first-person works all star females, and though there are boys in them, I have yet to dig too deep into the mind of a seventeen-year-old boy. Am I nervous? Umm… yes.
To help myself dig deeper into the psyche of my main character, I’m going back to some of my favorite male protagonists in YA literature:
Troy Billings of K. L. Going’s FAT KID RULES THE WORLD
Kip McFarland of Gail Giles’s RIGHT BEHIND YOU
Nick of Rachel Cohn & David Leviathan’s NICK AND NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST
Colin Singleton of John Green’s AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES
Who are your favorite male protagonists in YA? (And by extension, what should I be putting on hold at the library?)
