Marilyn Monroe
The Most glamorous book you have ever read

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

That plot pretty much says it all

hmm.. no surprise with my answer here. Harry was a great leader, particularly in Order of the Phoenix when Dumbledore’s Army was formed. He was independent and strong and stood up when they needed his help.

I’m gonna agree with Mariana here and say Joffrey from Game of Thrones. Because…Joffrey. Just- UGH

    I know in the movies Cho Chang betrayed Dumbledore’s Army, but in the books wasn’t it Cho’s friend? I forget her name, something like Mary or Melissa or something, haha. Also the synopsis of The Diviners just oozes glamour, I’ll definitely have to check it out! 🙂
