Callie Anders in The Ocean at the End of the Lane

By Neil Gaiman

Callie Anders

The Girl He Once Kissed Who Lives Down the Street

He alludes to this girl several times in that vague way:

I remembered being just-sixteen, and kissing red-cheeked, fair-haired Callie Anders, who lived there, and whose family would soon move to the Shetlands, and I would never kiss her or see her again. (Prologue.12)

And that's about all we know about Callie Anders.
