This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: What's the most unique character name you've come across?
Answer: Hmmmm, I think I'd have to go with Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door. I've definitely never read a book where the main guy had that name. I think that made him even more unique and memorable! Here's a picture of him I stumbled upon on someone's blog :)
Or you can just go with the picture of him on the cover of the book...
Either way, his name just seems to fit. Cricket is a strange choice for a name, but it totally embodies his character in the book. Even if the name is strange, as long as it captures the character, it can end up adding even more to their charm.
