Top Ten Tuesday: Ten YA Characters I’d Love To Revisit As Adults

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Ten Childhood  Young Adult Characters I’d Love To Revisit As Adults.

Here we go!

1. Aaron Soto

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone, so I’ll just say that I have wanted to know what life was like for Aaron after the book ended.

2. Sutter Keely…and Aimee

The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

I wasn’t happy with where The Spectacular Now left Sutter. I need to know how things worked out for him as an adult. I also want to know what life was like for Aimee, too.

3. Earl

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

I didn’t actually enjoy this book much, but I loved Earl. I would love to read a book in his point of view in his 20’s or 30’s. I can only imagine it would be hilarious.

4. The Reynolds Boys

On the Fence by Kasie West


Kasie West, would you please write a book about one (or all) of the Reynolds brothers in their 20’s?

5. Ezra Faulkner

The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

Ezra at the end of The Beginning of Everything had so much potential. I would love to see how life worked out for him.

6. Eleanor and Park

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I would like to see how both Eleanor and Park turned out as adults and what happened to their relationship along the way.

7. Shawn

Waiting on the Sidelines by Ginger Scott

Or is it Sean? I can’t remember. Dang it! But anyways. He wasn’t a main character, but I always wanted his story. It would be fun to get a look at his life as an adult. Maybe he can reminisce about the past so I can find out more about his history. 😉

8. Ellie

Jumping Off Swings by Jo Knowles

Ellie made some really hard choices in Jumping Off Swings. I would really be interested in finding out how they shaped her later in life.

9. Harper

The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

I would like to see how life for Harper turned out after she worked through things with Declan.

10. Keller Banks

Bright Side by Kim Holden


Okay, so this isn’t a YA book. Keller’s actually a college student. And we did get to see him again in Gus, but I want to see how his life turns out.

Which YA characters would you like to see as adult?

  1. I was so-so on Me, and Earl… too, but I agree it would be interesting to see how he grew up. Big events like that have a way of shaping you life, after all.

  2. Oh my god, Aaron. The ending of More Happy Than Not was so bittersweet and… open that I too really want to know what comes out of it, and if he eventually finds happiness somehow. Great answers! 🙂

  3. Such a great list!
    I totally forgot about Sutter … but then I mostly wrote about couples and well, Sutter and Amy were not together by the end so maybe that justifies it. BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW HIS LIFE CONTINUED!

  4. Oh Eleanor and Park! I would also love to hear how their lives turn out. I hope Eleanor finds a better home and happiness. But how I love them together! I like to think they found each other again 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier 🙂

  5. This is such a great list! I haven’t read any of these books but I have a few on them on my to-read list, I’ve heard great things about More Happy Than Not and I am so excited to pick up Eleanor and Park when I get a chance.
    Great picks!:D

  6. This is so niice!! 😀 Unfortunately, I haven’t read any of this book except for Eleanor&Park and I found the book amaziinng! Wish there would be a movie or something hahah !
