Character Role Analysis
Coraline might be one of our all-time favorite heroines. She's smart, she's brave, and she single-handedly takes out an evil creature (the dreaded other mother) and her entire made-up world, giving Neo in the Matrix a run for his money. Coraline is definitely the person we root for in this book. And the book is rightly named after Coraline – it's her story.
