Let's start off with a little bit of trivia: Superman's friends Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen have both had their own comic books, but these weren't as popular as Superman's comic book. Why? Well, maybe it's because it's more fun to see someone with super powers do cool stuff. This rule holds pretty well for a lot of young adult novels, too, which tend to follow the powerful and important. For comparison, check out Ender's Game, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, or The Lightning Thief. A Wizard of Earthsea follows this rule: it tells the story of super powerful magician Ged. The cool thing is that, through the book, we see Ged realize the limits of his power. (Yes, we said "limits") See, when you're a wizard, you may have godlike power, but that doesn't make you a god – it mostly makes you responsible for what you do with that power.
